    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring pasta water to a boil. Cook the shells al dente and drain. Place them in a large baking dish and set aside.
    2. 2
      Add the peas and ham to the pasta shells.
    3. 3
      In a sauce pan, melt the butter over low heat so that it doesn't burn.
    4. 4
      Add flour and stir with a wisk until the mixture thickens.
    5. 5
      Slowly add the milk so it doesn't cool off the butter and keep stirring.
    6. 6
      Once the milk is added, continue to stir with the wisk.
    7. 7
      When the milk starts to simmer slightly, add 1/2 of the cheese, a little at a time, allowing it to melt completely before adding more.
    8. 8
      When the sauce has the cheese melted in it, add it to the shells; stir to mix.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the shells.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle with the Panko bread crumbs.
    11. 11
      Place in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

      This particular recipe came in handy for me as I made it for a neighbor couple who love mac & cheese almost anyway I fix it, & they very much enjoyed this one, too! AND, now that I've had a taste of it myself, I'll be keeping it around a while, because it is absolutely delicious, & I want to make it for just the 2 of us before long! Many thanks for sharing it!
