Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over a medium heat. Once melted stir in the flour and mustard powder. Mix to a smooth paste and cook, stirring for 1 min.

  • STEP 2

    Gradually whisk in the milk until you have a smooth sauce. Simmer for 3–4 mins, whisking constantly until the sauce has thickened. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cheddar. Once melted, taste for seasoning, I like to add a generous grind of black pepper.

  • STEP 3

    Put the butternut noodles into a large bowl and pour over the cheese sauce, mixing well so that every strand is coated in the sauce then tip into a large ovenproof dish (about 25 x 30cm). In a small bowl mix together the Parmesan, breadcrumbs, thyme and cayenne.

  • STEP 4

    Scatter the breadcrumb mixture over the top of the butternut then bake for 20–25 mins until bubbling, crisp and golden.
