Good recipe to use as a basic guideline. I omitted the mozzarella and ham. I substituted 1 cup of heavy cream for the milk and increased the pasta to 12 oz (penne). I also cut the baking time to 20 minutes and broil for 1 minute. I definitely used a good 4 shakes of cayenne. It comes out very buttery and you can cut and eat it with a knife and fork. Not all sloppy and spoony and bland. The cheese incorporated nicely, but it will clump together if you turn the heat off before mixing with the pasta, so I'd just leave it on low while mixing. A little more cream might make it incorporate more easily. I also highly advise using fresh-ground black pepper. I might add pulverized garlic next time.
