I had a good size piece of ham leftover so I cut it into bite-sized pieces and created this recipe. :)

How to Make 3 Cheese Tortelli With Baked Ham Bites

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook tortelli as per package directions; set aside (this product has 3 kinds of cheese inside the pasta). Cut ham into bite-sized pieces; set aside.
  2. Mix butter and flour to make a rue in a saucepan stirring slowly. Blend in milk and cheese. Do not boil.
  3. Combine ham and pasta in an 8" by 8 " glass casserole dish. Pour liquid cheese combination over pasta.
  4. Place bread crumbs in a frying pan. Heat slightly to brown the topping (Panko bread crumbs are made from the center of a white bread without crust). Taste is crunchier than traditional bread crumbs.
  5. Put topping over the pasta and ham to go into the pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
