12 ounces bowtie pasta, cooked according to package instructions
3 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half and half or heavy cream
4 slices Swiss cheese, (or 1/2 cup grated)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (shaved or grated) + 1/4 cup, divided
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon Dijon style mustard
2 cups ham, chopped into 1 inch squares
2 cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken would work fine)
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


In a medium sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and saute 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add flour and stir until it clumps up.

Gradually whisk in half and half (or heavy cream) 1/2 cup at a time until all milk is incorporated and mixture is smooth.

Add swiss cheese, 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, onion powder, salt, pepper, and dijon mustard. Stir until smooth.

In a large bowl combine cooked pasta, chopped chicken, chopped ham, and the sauce. Mix until well combined. Transfer mixture to a casserole dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, and Italian seasoning.

Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes until breadcrumbs are browned. Serve warm.
