Sprinkle with half the cheese. Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the onion and garlic until soft. Add the spinach and heat until the spinach is soft, about 2 minutes. Season with nutmeg and add the diced ham. Spoon onto the cheese layer in the dish, add the remaining pasta and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Whisk the eggs, milk and cream together, season to taste with salt and pepper and pour over the mixture in the bowl. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and bake for about 30-40 minutes or until the egg mixture has set. Serves 6.
