Cook pasta according to package directions, drain. In a bowl whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, milk and hot sauce. In a large bowl combine the pasta, onion, peas, ham and 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Pour the mayonnaise mixture over the ham mixture and toss. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and add the ham and pasta mixture. Sprinkle on the other cup of shredded cheese. Crush the 20 Ritz crackers and toss with the melted butter. Spread the cracker crumbs on top of the shredded cheese. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Makes 8 servings. Enjoy!
