INGREDIENTS
Servings: 6
Elbow macaroni
1 (8 ounce) package
Butter
5 tbsps
All-purpose flour
5 tbsps
Milk
1 quart, warm (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
Cayenne pepper
1 pinch
Cubed ham
¼ pound
Cheddar cheese
5 ounces
Mozzarella cheese
5 ounces
Monterey Jack cheese

DIRECTIONS
  1. While preheating the oven to 350 degrees F/175 degrees C, take a 9x13 baking dish and grease it. Then, cook the pasta following the package directions.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan. When melted, add the flour to make a roux. Continue to cook stirring constantly, about 1-2 minutes. To make a white sauce, add the warm milk slowly, stirring all the while. After the sauce begins to boil, reduce to simmer. Add pepper, salt, and cayenne to taste. Stir until the sauce thickens.
  3. Switch off the flame and add the cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey Jack and cubed ham to the white sauce.
  4. Coat the cooked pasta with the sauce. Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish. Season with paprika.
  5. Bake until the top is crispy, about 45-60 minutes.
