Baked Rigatoni

Ingredients:
  • 1 pkg (16 oz) rigatoni pasta
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 qt milk (4 cups)
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese or 1 cup mozzarella, and 1 cup provolone
  • about 1/2 lb thinly sliced ham
  • seasonings (onion salt, pepper, cayenne pepper)
  • small pads of butter for top

Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt butter over medium heat and start water boiling for pasta. Once butter is melted, whisk in flour. Add milk, and continue to stir until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. When the water is boiling, add pasta and cook until just starting to get soft. When the white sauce is done, add the seasonings, ham, and cheese.  Stir well, to get the cheese melted. Drain pasta and add to the sauce. Pour mixture into a greased 9×13 pan, smooth the top and sprinkle with cheese. Dot the top with butter and bake for about 25 minutes, or until the top is bubbly and brown.
