"This is like homemade macaroni and cheese but with the fun bow tie pasta and hearty ham. While this makes perfect use of leftover ham, there usually aren't any leftovers when I serve this! My family gobbles it right up."

Recipe Ingredients for Ham and Cheese Bowties

8 ounces bow tie pasta
1/4 cup butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups shredded Colby cheese

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
