While those cook, you’ll make some bread crumbs. Toast a piece of bread, then pulse it in the food processor a couple times until you have fine bread crumbs. Set that aside for now.

In a heat-safe bowl (or simply use the pot you cooked the noodles in, rather than dirtying another dish) combine the noodles and sauce, along with a cup of frozen peas and 2 cups of diced, cooked ham. Stir it all together.

Pour the mixture into a baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. You can use a 2 quart casserole dish if you like. I chose to use a large cast iron skillet.

Now in another dish combine the bread crumbs that you made, with a tablespoon of melted butter. Stir those together. I melted the butter in a small skillet, and simply added the bread crumbs in there.

Sprinkle the buttered crumbs all over the top of the casserole. Cover your baking dish with foil, and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover the dish and continue to bake for another 10 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly.
