  Butter 8 Tablespoon
  Flour 4 Tablespoon
  Light cream 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Nutmeg 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ditali 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs), cooked very al dente, drained (Macaroni Cut In Very Short Lengths)

In a large saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of butter; stir in the flour, and cook, stirring, over medium heat, until the paste is smooth and golden.
Off heat, slowly pour in the cream, and stir into a smooth mixture.
Reduce heat to low, add salt and nutmeg to the sauce in the saucepan and simmer, stirring, for 3 minutes or until it begins to thicken.
Stir in the cooked ditali, the ham, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese, and the onion.
Butter a 3-quart casserole, pour in the pasta-ham-cheese mixture.
Melt the remaining butter and blend it with the remaining cheese and breadcrumbs.
Spread this evenly on top of the casserole and cook, uncovered, in a preheated 375-degree oven for 20 minutes or until brown and bubbling.
