  Boiling water 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Needed To Make 0.5 Pot)
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Flour 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Milk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Cheddar cheese 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs), shredded
  Salt 1 Dash (For The Cheese Sauce)
  Ham 10 Ounce (Two 5 Ounce Cans - Tender Chunk)
  Green pepper 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), chopped
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Added After All Other Ingredients)
  Cooking oil spray 1

1) Place uncooked pasta into rapidly boiling water in a medium to large pot.
2) Add 1 tablespoon salt. Stir and then let cook for about 8 minutes, until al dente (cooked, but still chewy, not mushy).
3) While cooking your pasta, prepare your cheese sauce. Melt butter or margarine in a saucepan.
4) Remove from heat and add the flour. Stir the flour and butter or margarine until blended.
5) Now, add milk and Cheddar cheese. Return this mixture to the stove, add a dash of salt, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and smooth.
6) Your pasta should be done now, and when it is done, drain the water through a colander and return the cooked pasta to its original pan.
7) Combine the cooked cheese sauce with the cooked pasta.
8) Add the tender-chunk ham and green bell pepper. Stir together, and then and an additional 1/2 cup milk (or desired amount for creaminess).
9) Stir completely, and then pour into a fairly large baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil.
10) Bake in an oven that has been preheated to 350 for 1/2 hour.
11) Turn oven to broil, and brown the top for about 5 minutes, or to your liking. Happy Easter (and day-after-Easter)!
