This is a super delicious dish that I made to encourage my son to eat more vegetables – we used the courgettes he grew in the garden! I thoroughly enjoyed eating this meal it was really creamy.

Ingredients

  • Butter – 100g
  • Plain Flour – 2 tbsp
  • Milk – 2 pints
  • Mature Cheddar – 200/300g
  • Dijon Mustard – half tsp
  • Pepper for seasoning
  • Courgette – 1
  • Ham – chopped into pieces (optional)
  • Oil – splash
  • Pasta – 500g

Method

  1. Put a pan of water on to boil. Once boiling add in the pasta.
  2. Slice courgette into thin circles and put in a frying pan with oil. Cook once the water is boiling.
  3. Chop ham into pieces and put to the side for serving.
  4. Melt the butter in a sauce pan and mix with the plain flour until it’s a paste.
  5. Add in milk little by little until it’s all mixed in and smooth.
  6. Once thickened, add the mature cheddar until melted into the sauce and thick.
  7. Add Dijon mustard and season with pepper.
  8. Once the pasta has been cooked and drained, mix in the cheese sauce.
  9. Serve with the courgette and ham.
