Pieday Friday ~ Cauliflower cheese pasta bake

My new favourite recipe to make for an evening meal is the subject of today’s Pieday Friday. I love veg, pasta and especially cheese so it combines all of my favourites in one meal – perfect. And it really is as simple as it sounds: just steam some cauliflower and broccoli while boiling up some pasta. Drain them all and add to a baking dish before pouring cheese sauce over the top.

Here’s how to make the cheese sauce:

Ingredients: 25g/1oz butter, 25g/1oz plain flour, 600ml/1 pint milk, salt and white pepper, 80g/3oz cheese, grated

    1. Melt the butter in a saucepan then stir in the flour and cook for a couple of minutes until it thickens into a paste
    2. Take the pan off the heat and gradually stir in the milk to get a smooth sauce.
    3. Simmer gently for 5 minutes and season with salt and white pepper, adding more milk if the sauce gets too thick.
    4. Stir in cheese and allow to melt, then pour over the pasta and veg and bake.
    5. Sprinkle on a little more grated cheese and bake in the oven for 5-10 minutes until the cheesy topping melts and becomes golden.
