Ham and noodle crockpot casserole

I know, I know. "Casserole" makes you not want to make it, right? I made this for our monthly family potluck last week and it was a hit. So I was asked to post the recipe here. Just try it; you won't be sorry you did :) (For the potluck I doubled this recipe.)

1 cup uncooked noodles
vegetable oil
1 cup cooked cubed ham
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can (12 to 16 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
1 tablespoon chopped pimiento
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
dash ground black pepper, or to taste

Cook noodles according to package directions until barely tender, about 5 to 6 minutes. Drain and toss the cooked noodles with 2 to 3 teaspoons of vegetable oil, just enough to coat. Add noodles, ham, cream of chicken soup, corn, pimiento, cheese, ground pepper, and green bell pepper to a greased crockpot; stir gently to mix. Cover and cook on LOW setting 6 to 7 hours. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serves 3 to 4.
