DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Butter a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish and set aside.
  • Cook the noodles in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Drain well, but do not rinse.
  • Whisk the cream, milk, flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper in large bowl to blend.
  • Stir in 1 cup Fontina, 1/2 cup Parmesan, 1/2 cup mozzarella, ham, if using, and parsley. Add the noodles and toss to coat.
  • Transfer the noodle mixture to the prepared baking dish.
  • Toss the remaining 1 cup Fontina, 1/4 cup Parmesan, and 1/4 cup mozzarella in a small bowl to blend. Sprinkle the cheese mixture over the noodle mixture.
  • Bake until the sauce bubbles and the cheese melts and begins to brown on top, about 20 minutes.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
