Ingredients

  • 5-6 cups leftover or rotisserie chicken shredded or cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 pound deli ham cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 cups cavatappi pasta cooked and drained

Cheese Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded

Topping:

  • 2 cups Swiss cheese shredded

Instructions

  • First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Then, lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with olive oil or with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Cook pasta per box directions, drain, drizzle with some olive oil.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat, add butter, and melt.
  • Once melted add flour and stir until fully combined, cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Next, add the milk slowly, whisking continuously until fully mixed. Let it come to a simmer.
  • Reduce heat to low, add salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Stir to combine, taste, and adjust.
  • Turn off heat and add shredded mozzarella, stir until fully melted.
  • Add cooked pasta to a large bowl, add cubed chicken and cubed ham. Add cheese sauce and stir until well combined and the ingredients are evenly coated.
  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and level the top with a spatula.
  • Top with the shredded Swiss cheese.
  • Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until the cheese on top is lightly golden-brown and the mixture is bubbling.
  • Remove from oven, let it stand for 10 minutes, and garnish with freshly chopped parsley before serving.
