Directions:
Prepare pasta; set aside. Gently melt butter in a pan over low heat. Add the flour and mix well. Cook mix for 1 minute and then remove from heat. Stir in the milk, a little at a time, to make a smooth sauce. Put pan back on heat. Stir while the sauce thickens so it doesn't go lumpy. When the sauce boils, turn down heat and cook, stirring for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix in the cheddar, ham and tomatoes. Season. Mix pasta with the sauce. Place in overproof dish and sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake in oven, on a baking sheet for 20-25 minutes.
