Cornflakes Ham Casserole

I actually found this recipe printed on the back of a box of Cornflakes cereal. It looked pretty interesting and easy to make, so I decided to try it out. Firstly, you would need to cook some pasta. The recipe called for egg noodles but I used some tri colored rotini. I guess it doesn't matter what kind of noodle/pasta you use. Just cook the pasta until al dente, then set it aside.
Next, melt some butter in a pan and throw in some sliced button mushrooms.
Once the mushrooms are semi cooked, add in some chopped ham.

Mix the ham and mushrooms together and allow it to cook for a bit. Once that's done, add in a can of condensed cheddar cheese soup and about 3/4 cups of milk. Crack in some black pepper as well as some onion and garlic powder. Combine it all together.

Add in the pasta and mix it all together well.

Transfer everything into a lightly greased baking dish.

Sprinkle some Mozzarella cheese on top of the casserole.

In a large mixing bowl, crush about 2 and a 1/2 cups of Corn flakes. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of melted butter and mix it all together.

Top the casserole with the Corn flakes mixture.

Pop in the casserole into a 350F oven for about 30-35 minutes. You will know that it's done once the edges are bubbly.

Allow the casserole to settle for a few minutes before serving.

I was really surprised that it turned out to be so yummy. It's a great idea to use cornflakes instead of breadcrumbs to top the casserole. The whole apartment just smelled so good when the casserole was in the oven! This recipe is definitely a keeper. :D
