Thia is a great dish. Comfort food all the way. Try using your favorite veggies. The origional recipe called for broccoli so that is what I've posted but I have used escarole, broccoli rabe, spinach and radicchio with good results in the past.

  1. Blanch the broccoli until crisp-tender, drain well.
  2. If using pancetta or bacon fry in a pan until cooked through. Prosciutto is ready to use as is, cook the ham if it is raw.

  4. Cook pasta according to package directions but under cook by 3 minutes, drain.
  5. Place pasta in a buttered baking dish. Pour over béchamel cheese sauce and mix well.
  6. Mix together the parmesan, bread crumbs and oil and sprinkle over the top of the casserole.
  7. Bake at 400 until bubbly. You may wish to stick it under the broiler to brown a little.
