Country Ham and Macaroni Casserole

1 lb cooked ham, cubed
1 large onion, diced
1 lb elbow macaroni (I used shell-shaped pasta)
2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese (8 oz) - 2 % milk kind
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 can reduced fat cream of chicken soup

Heat oven to 400º. Bring 4 quarts water to boiling in large pot. Once water begins to boil, add onion and pasta to pot. Return water to boiling; cook 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain pasta and onion; return to pot. Add ham, cheese, sour cream and soup. Pour into a 13x9x2 baking dish. Bake in heated 400º oven 30 minutes or until heated through. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

If freezing: Prepare in two 8x8 casserole dishes, bake one and freeze one (unbaked) for another day. Let thaw in fridge before baking as directed.

I made this the other night for the opening ceremonies of the Olympics! I made one to freeze and baked one right away. I added a little extra cheese on top before baking! It was delicious! We all loved it! Can't wait to get the one out of the freezer for another dinner!
