Ingredients

  • 2 cups of dried pasta, e.g. fussili
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 a head of broccoli, chopped into bite sized peices
  • 50g butter
  • 50g flour
  • 1 pint milk
  • 100-150g of cheddar cheese(depends how strong the cheese is)
  • salt and pepper and a pinch if cayenne pepper.
  • A handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped.

Method

    1. Put the pasta into a large pan of salted boiling water and cook according to the packs instructions. About 4 minutes before the pasta is cooked add in the broccoli. Add the peas for the last minute of cooking.
    2. Put the butter into a medium size pan over a medium heat to melt, once melted add in the flour and whisk. This will make a roux to which you can add milk or stock to make the base of many sauces.
    3. To the roux add the cold milk a bit at a time over the heat, whisking vigorously to avoid lumps. When all the milk is added season with salt, black pepper and a pinch of cayenne pepper for an extra kick.
    4. Grate the cheese and stir it into the hot sauce until melted.
    5. Drain the pasta and veg and put it back in the pan, pour on the cheese sauce and stir through the fresh parsley. Serve immediately
