I made this easy Sunday evening dinner in the hope it would help clear my nasty cold. It didn’t. But it was super tasty and comforting, and made lunch for the next 2 days.

1) in a pan boil up 2 cups of pasta.

2) melt 1 big tbsp of butter in a pan, stir in 1 dessert spoon of plain flour, pour over 1 cup of milk and whisk on the heat for 3-4 mins.

3) grate over parmesan and cheddar and whisk til thickened, set aside.

4) add chopped broccoli to the boiling pasta for the final 3-4 mins.

5) once pasta is cooked, drain and put back in the pan, stir in 2 big handfuls of fresh spinach til wilted.

6) pour over the white sauce and stir. Pour the pasta and veg mixture into a lasagne dish and grate over Parmesan and cheddar.

7) bake at 180 degrees C for 15/20 mins.

Serve up with comforting garlic bread. Avoid sneezing in the pasta bake. Get better soon!
