Chicken & Ham Pasta Bake

A huge and delicious bake of orichiette pasta (like little flying saucers) with chicken and ham. I wanted to feed seven hungry mouths and have some leftovers for the next day .. I used the meat from a whole roasted chicken and a boiled ham joint. I made a big pan of bechamel, using all the chickeny juices and adding a bit of cheese. I also used about 750g of pasta and mixed it all in a big dish (actually it was the big roasting tin I do the turkey in at christmas). Finally, some breadcrumbs, and into the oven to get crispy and bubbly.
We had it with roasted tomatoes and garlic bread.
