Cheese Macaroni and Ham Casserole

I made this for a friend of ours who just had a baby. I hope her family liked it! I forgot to take a picture of it, though. I will add one once I make it for us again. Of course, they probably wouldn't of like their food plastered on the internet, so maybe its a good thing I didn't. It is a total comfort food, though, so that is why I made this for them.

The Menu:
Cheese Macaroni and Ham Casserole

The Original Recipe:
You know where this came from. Do I even have to say it? I don't make any changes to this other than omitting the bread crumbs sometimes. I have also added french fried onions on top instead. Either way, it's still a definite comfort food!
