    Vegetable and Macaroni Bake (WW recipe)
    Serves 4 - Points per serving 4.5

    180 g pasta, uncooked, macaroni
    90 g green beans, sliced
    1 medium courgette, sliced
    1 medium red green or yellow pepper(s), de-seeded and sliced
    120 g cauliflower, or broccoli, broken into small florets
    450 ml skimmed milk
    3 level tablespoon cornflour
    90 g half-fat cheddar cheese, grated

    1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190ºC/375°F.


    2. Cook the macaroni in plenty of boiling, lightly salted water for about 10 minutes, until just tender. Meanwhile, cook the vegetables in a small amount of boiling, lightly salted water for 3-4 minutes; drain well.


    3. While the macaroni and vegetables are cooking, put the milk and cornflour in a saucepan and stir until blended. Heat, stirring constantly with a small wire whisk or wooden spoon, until thickened and smooth. Remove from the heat and add most of the cheese, stirring until it melts. Season with salt and pepper.


    4. Drain the macaroni and add the cheese sauce, stirring well. Add the vegetables and stir well again. Transfer to a shallow ovenproof baking dish and sprinkle with the reserved cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese melts and turns golden brown.

    I made the Macaroni and Vegetable bake (see recipe above) last night. It was so yummy. I didn't add the peppers, but I did add some cherry tomatoes right at the end, before putting it in the oven. I would highly recommend the recipe.
