Ham and Cheese Pasta – Freezer Meal

Submitted by: tsmith on February 26, 2012

A family favorite meal that is as easy as pulling it out of the freezer and heating it up. If you want it even easier, freeze in disposable aluminum pans. I cook once and I can feed my little family four times.

Servings: 2-4 meals        


2 16 oz packages pasta noodles of your choice (cooked according to package directions)
1 cup butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup flour
2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
8 cups milk
2 tsp dijon mustard
8 cups shredded colby cheese
4 cups cooked ham, cut into bite sized pieces


In a large pot, melt butter on low heat. Add garlic and saute about 30-40 seconds. Add flour, salt, and pepper. Using a wisk, stir over medium heat until there are no lumps and the mixture begins to bubble. Slowly add milk, stirring entire time and bring to a boil. Once boiling, allow to boil for one minute then add mustard and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Add ham and pasta. Stir until evenly coated. Pour into freezer containers. Cool and freeze.

Reheating instructions: Thaw. Preheat oven to 350. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until heated through and bubbly.
