Gluten Free Asparagus Ham Casserole

3-3/4 c uncooked gluten free pasta (your choice, I used Fusilli)
2-1/2 c asparagus, sliced
1/4 c cornstarch
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 c milk
1 c gluten free chicken broth
1 tbsp butter
1 c onion, chopped
1-1/2 c gluten free ham, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 c parsley, chopped
1/2 c Parmesan cheese, grated
2 c cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cook pasta in boiling water until almost done. Add asparagus and continue to boil for 1 minute; drain and set aside. Place cornstarch, thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and add milk and broth stirring until well blended. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and saute until softened. Add milk mixture and cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. In a large bowl, combine pasta & asparagus, milk mixture, ham, parsley and cheddar cheese; gently mix together. Transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 minutes until bubbly and golden on top.
