    Crispy Prosciutto Pasta Bake

    An easy midweek pasta dish with a crunchy topping, which the whole family will enjoy. It tastes great and is good for them, too, as it's made with spelt penne (or use multigrain pasta) and a Waitrose Perfectly Balanced cheese sauce that contains less than 3 per cent fat.
