Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup elbow macaroni
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cups broccoli florets
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
2 1/4 cups grated Parmesan or Romano cheese (about 9 ounces), divided
2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup diced baked ham or prosciutto
1/4 cup Italian-style bread crumbs


Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a 2-quart shallow baking dish.

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain in a colander and rinse. Lightly toss with oil. Spoon pasta into prepared dish.

While pasta is cooking, put broccoli into a large saucepan; add water to cover. Cook over medium-high heat until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Add broccoli to pasta and combine.

In broccoli saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; stir in flour. Cook, whisking constantly, about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk. With wooden spoon, stir in 2 cups Parmesan, mustard and pepper; stir in ham. Pour sauce over pasta mixture; mix well. Sprinkle casserole with bread crumbs and remaining Parmesan. Bake pasta until lightly browned and bubbly, about 25 minutes.
