280g broccoli, cut into florets
40g plain flour
500-600ml semi-skimmed milk
½x tsp white pepper
150g cheddar, grated
1 x tbsp wholegrain mustard
Optional: Green salad as a side dish
- Cook the penne according to packet instructions. 5 minutes before end of cooking time, add the broccoli.
- Meanwhile, make the white sauce (like you would normally) with all the other ingredients, and half the cheese.
- Drain the pasta and broccoli, pour the white sauce over and mix well. Pour into a baking dish, top with the rest of the cheese and put under a hot grill until nice and gratinated. Serve!
