This is a great quick and easy meal to prepare in the morning ready for popping in the oven 20 mins before needed. It’s got all that’s needed for a healthy meal for toddlers, children and adults and it’s delicioulsy tasty too!
1 x small cauliflower, chopped into florets, lightly boiled or steamed
Any kind of pasta (I used approx 180g pennoni rigate), pre-cooked and set aside
1/2 pack any type bacon
1 x cup grated cheese
1 x large teaspoon wholegrain mustard
basic white sauce (I would put weights though I never weigh the ingredients, milk, butter and flour are required though I’m sure a shop-bought white sauce would do the trick)
Chop up the bacon and fry in some butter until crispy. Add in the pre-cooked cauliflower and pasta and stir before adding to a dish:
To your basic white sauce add the seasoning, mustard and cheese (saving some cheese for the topping) and stir together. 20 mins before the meal is required, pour the sauce over the pasta, sprinkle with cheese and bake in the oven at approx 200C until piping hot through and cheese has turned golden on top.
Serve with fresh salad or greens.
