Potato-Ham Bake

I got this recipe from New Cookbook, and I loved it! If you are a potato fun, absolutely try it!

1 pound potatoes, sliced
1 8-ounce tub light cream cheese spread with chive & onion
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp black pepper
8 ounces cooked boneless ham, cubbed
1 pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into pieces ( I used cut green beans, since we have some canned green beans at home)

    Preheat oven to 400 degress. Light grease a 1.5 quart baking dish, set aside. ( I didn't know the size of the baking dish would matter, so I used a 3-quart baking dish. It didn't turn out good. So please use 1.5 or 2- quart baking dish. ) In a saucepan cook potatoes, add water ( just cover potatoes), bring to boil, but just till potatoes are tender. Drain.
    For cheese sauce, in a saucepan combine cream cheese, milk, 2 tbsp of the Parmesan cheese, and pepper. Heat and whisk cream cheese mixture till smooth. Remove from heat.
    Layer half of the potatoes, ham, asparagus (or green beans), and cheese sauce in the prepared baking dish. Repeat layers with remaining potatoes, ham, asparagus and cheese sauce. Cover with foil. Bake for 20 munites. Remove foil, sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese, bake, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes.
