A pasta dish with cheesy sauce, peas and broccoli.


  • 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.


  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 4
    Grate the cheese and stir it into the hot sauce until melted.
  • STEP 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
