Cook the macaroni but leave it al dente, then drain. Meanwhile, melt the butter and stir in the flour, cook for 1 minute and then gradually stir in the milk.
Bubble the sauce, stirring it for a couple of minutes to cook out the raw flavour of the flour. Season well and stir in both the cheeses and the ham. Add the macaroni and then tip the lot into an ovenproof dish, sprinkle on the breadcrumbs and dust with a good pinch of paprika. Grill the top for about 2 minutes, or until golden and crunchy.
Serve with either a crisp green salad or some lightly steamed green veg.
