Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then pour cheese sauce over vegetables and ham.
  3. Tear day-old bread into pieces and process in a food processor to form coarse crumbs. Combine crumbs with remaining grated cheese and prosciutto, then sprinkle over cheese sauce. Lightly spray with oil and bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Stand gratin for 5 minutes before serving.
