    The mixture may be baked in a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish instead of individual ramekins. Bake the casserole for 25 to 30 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Using 1 tablespoon of the butter, grease 5 (8 to 10-ounce) ramekins.
  2. Cook the pasta as directed on package and drain.
  3. In a 3-quart saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the remaining butter over low heat. Add the garlic; cook for 2 minutes or until soft, but not brown. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until mixed. Increase the heat to medium. Gradually stir in the milk, beating with wire whisk until smooth. Cook until the mixture boils, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat.
  4. Stir in the sour cream, Asiago, Fontina and blue cheeses and ham; stir until the cheese melts. Stir in the cooked pasta. Spoon into the ramekins.
  5. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter; stir in the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over the pasta.
  6. Bake the pasta for 15 to 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
