  • Penne Pasta 140g
  • Mushrooms 50g
  • Small Broccoli heads 1 handfull
  • Onion 1 small
  • Thick Cooked Ham 2 1/2 slices
  • Semi-skimmed Milk 250ml
  • Margarine 20g (1 tbsp)
  • Plain Flour 15g
  • Mustard Powder 1/2 tsp
  • Vegetable Oil 2tsp
  • Seasoning


    1. Preheat the oven to 190c/Gas mark 5
    2. Cook the pasta in boiling water until 'al dente' (soft). Whilst this is cooking, chop the mushrooms and broccoli ready to add later. Also chop the onion and set aside.
    3. Once the broccoli and mushrroms are chopped, add them to the saucepan and leave to soften a bit more. When this is done, drain the mixture then set aside in the large bowl.
    4. Now fry the onion with the vegetable oil at the bottom of the saucepan. Do this for about 3/5 until cooked - they shouldn't be brown. Then add them to the mixture in the bowl and stir around so it can mix in.
    5. Measure out the sauce ingredients, then place in the small bowl. Tip all of this into the, now empty, saucepan and stir well with the whisk on a low heat.
    6. Stir all the time until the sauce thickens . Keep stirring until the sauce has a smooth consistency and is free from lumps.
    7. Put the sauce in the bowl with the pasta, then stir until the sauce covers the mixture.
    8. Tear the ham into small, thin shreds and sprinkle into the mixture. Stir in and add any seasoning: salt & pepper.
    9. Place the mixture into an oven-proof dish and cook for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
