Portions: 10


  • Ingredients
  • 450g macaroni noodles, uncooked

Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling water, shaving two minutes from the stated cooking time on pack instructions. One minute before the end of cooking time add the peas then drain and refresh in cold water.
Heat 800ml of water in a sauce pan. In a separate bowl whisk the béchamel powder into 250ml cold water until smooth then add to the boiling water, whisking continuously and gradually returning to the boil.
Simmer for 1 minute then add the cheese and mustard.
Tip into a large oven proof dish and top with sliced tomatoes. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 200°C/ 400°F/ Gas Mark 6 for 20 minutes, or until bubbling and golden.
