MAC & CHEESE SOUP WITH HAM

Melissa Friday

1 ham steak

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 (14-ounce) can chicken broth

2 cups fat free half & half

1 ½ cups water

1 tablespoon chicken granules

1 lb. Velveeta cheese, cubed

Salt and pepper to taste

8 ounces cooked small shell macaroni

Cook pasta according to box directions, drain and set aside.  In a large soup pot, brown the ham steak for 3 minutes on each side.  Remove from heat and set ham steak aside to cool.  Add butter to the ham drippings in the pan and melt on low heat.  Gradually whisk flour into the melted butter.  Now gradually whisk the mustard and chicken broth into the butter and flour mixture until smooth.  Cut ham into bite-size pieces and add the ham and remaining ingredients and cover and simmer on low for 30 minutes.  Add cooked macaroni and stir well.  Heat an additional 10 minutes then serve.  As it sits it will get thicker, so just add milk to thin it out, if needed.
