For the Sauce; in a heavy non-aluminum pot, melt butter, add all-purpose
flour and cook on moderate heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly with a
wire whisk. Add the milk and bring just barely to the boiling point.
Turn off the heat and add Fontina cheese and blend into the hot milk.

a large, heavy skillet over medium heat and sauté the vegetables and ham
together until crisp tender. Stir frequently.

Drain the pasta and blend with the vegetable-ham mixture; add the hot
sauce and blend again, to coat all ingredients with sauce. Pass grated
Parmesan at the table.
