Recipe: Mozzarella, Ham and Penne

Mozzeralla Ham and Penne

Mozzarella, Ham and Penne

This recipe is a spin off of the traditional Mac ‘n Cheese we all know and love.


2 c Penne
2 Tbs Dried Minced Onion (1/2 c chopped fresh)
2 Tbs Butter
2 Tbs Flour
1/8 tsp Pepper
2 c Milk
3 c Mozzarella, shredded (12 oz.)



Cook pasta according to directions on package. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, cook the cheese sauce. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Saute the onion until translucent. Add flour and pepper, whisk to create a roux. Add in milk, whisking to keep lumps out. Once the milk is nice and hot, add in your mozzarella. When it’s all melted, add the pasta to the sauce pan. Mix to fill the pasta innards with cheese. Pour into a 2 qt. casserole dish and bake at 350° for around 30 minutes. Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving to let the cheese set up.
