Asparagus-and-Ham Casserole ( Under 300 Calories )

Ingredients:
  • 1 (1-ounce) slice white bread $
  • 3 3/4 cups uncooked extra-broad egg noodles $
  • 2 1/2 cups (1 1/2-inch) sliced asparagus
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour $
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion $
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed ham (about 8 ounces) $
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 450°.

Place bread in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs form to measure 1/2 cup.
Cook pasta in boiling water 7 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add asparagus; cook 1 minute. Drain.

Lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Place flour, thyme, salt, and pepper in medium bowl; gradually add milk and broth, stirring with a whisk until well-blended. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion; saute 4 minutes. Add milk mixture; cook until thick (about 4 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in juice. Combine the pasta mixture, milk mixture, ham, and parsley in large bowl; spoon into a 2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cheese.

Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden.
