- 1 lb penne pasta
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 3 Tbsp flour
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tsp. mustard powder
- 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
- 1 cup thick-cut ham chopped
- 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 Tbsp fresh parsley chopped
Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain the cooked pasta and set aside.
Melt the butter in a Dutch/French oven over medium heat. Add the garlic to the pan and cook for about 2 minutes, until fragrant.
Sprinkle the flour into the skillet and cook for 2 more minutes, until the mixture is golden brown. Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream, and bring the mixture to a boil.
Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add the mustard powder. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until slightly thickened, about 10-12 minutes.
Remove the pot from heat and stir in the cooked pasta, chicken, ham, and Swiss cheese. Sprinkle Parmesan over the top.
Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 13-15 minutes. Broil for an extra 2-3 minutes for a golden-brown finish. Garnish with parsley, and serve.
