Ingredients

* 1 package (8 ounces) elbow macaroni
* 6 tablespoons butter, divided
* 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* Dash pepper

* 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
* 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained

Cook the macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile in large saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons butter. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth; gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Reduce heat. Add the cheese; cook and stir until melted. Stir in the ham, mushrooms and pimientos. Drain macaroni; stir into ham mixture.
