2 8oz packages Fiber Gourmet Pasta - Rotini (to order: https://www.netrition.com/cgi/goto.cgi?aid=4549
1/4 cup Melt Butter
1/4 cup Organic All Purpose Flour
2 cups Almond Milk

1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
3 cups fully cooked Ham cubes
1 package (10oz) frozen Spinach (or 2-3 cups fresh)
Prepare pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a Dutch Oven or large stock pot, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth, gradually add milk. Bring to boil- cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat, add the cheese, garlic powder and pepper. Cook until the cheese is melted- stirring constantly.
Drain pasta and add to sauce. Stir in ham and spinach. Transfer to a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake uncovered, at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
