Pasta Cordon Bleu

I hope everyone had a happy Easter!  One of the things I love about holidays is leftovers!  I have my favorite go-to recipes that are great for leftovers, but I’m always on the look out for new things to try.  I found this recipe for Pasta Cordon Bleu on Pinterest and thought it would be a good way to use up leftover Easter ham.  It seemed to be a fun take on Chicken Cordon Bleu only in a casserole! 

Is It a Keeper?

I did make A LOT of tweaks to the original recipe.  I read all of the reviews/comments with the original recipe and most said the recipe had potential but it lacked something.  So, I added onion, garlic (of course!) and Dijon mustard.

The tweaks did add flavor to the dish, but it was sort of lack luster.  Don’t get me wrong. It was good and the leftovers were even better.  You could tell that the flavors really had a chance to work with each other. This recipe didn’t really tickle my fancy (I love that phrase…it makes me chuckle).   What do you think?  Would you doctor this up any more?  What is your favorite way to use up Easter leftovers?

    I really liked it. I used the philly garlic cooking creme instead of plain cream cheese. It gave it a burst of flavor.
