Instructions

White sauce

  • In a medium saucepan melt the butter, stir in the flour and cook over a gentle heat for a few minutes.

Pasta

Other ingredients

  • Place the oil in a non stick frying pan and fry the onion on a medium heat for a few minutes until translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft. Transfer the onions and mushrooms to a plate.
  • Add the turkey and ham to the pan and fry for 10 minutes until cooked.

Assembly

  • Add the sauce, onions, mushrooms, turkey and ham to the pasta and mix well.   Add in some of the pasta water if needed to loosen.
  • Transfer to an oven proof gratin or lasagna dish, sprinkle with the breadcrumbs, and top with the chees.

Bake

  • Bake at GM4 / 180C / 350F for about 12 minutes until piping hot and the cheese has melted.
  • Serve immediately with your choice of vegetables.

Notes

  • Omit the mushrooms and add peas and corn to the bake.
  • For a more grown up version add chorizo in place of the ham and top with blue cheese.
