Nordic macaroni bake

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Cubed ham [I bet Jim Bodle could try Spam here!]
2 tablespoons Butter
½ cup Chopped green pepper
½ cup Chopped onion
2 tablespoons Flour
2½ cup Milk, divided
4 cups Cooked small macaroni shells (1/2 lb. uncooked)
1 cup Cubed Jarlsberg cheese
1 cup Chopped tomato
1 teaspoon Dry mustard
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
½ cup Grated Jarlsberg cheese

In saucepan, brown ham in butter until slightly browned. Add green pepper and onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add flour and mix thoroughly; cook two minutes. Remove from heat and gradually stir in two cups of the milk. Return to heat and cook, stirring, until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat and add cooked macaroni shells, cubed cheese, tomato, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix well and turn into greased 2-quart baking dish. Bake at 350 F degrees for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and check moisture content. If dish is too dry, add remaining half cup of milk. Sprinkle with grated cheese and return to oven for 10 minutes longer or until mixture bubbles and cheese begins to brown. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
