You can use leftovers in this pasta bake, making it very economical. Leftover pasta, leftover chicken, leftover ham - it all works well in this recipe. If you have some leftover veg, you can add that too.
beautiful taste, will make again - 18 Aug 2011
Lovely simple recipe for a quick easy dinner!! I used a left over bacon joint,which gave a lovely flavour, some mushrooms and a bit of cabbage. I also added a spoon full of Dijon mustard to the sauce. Very tasty, this will now be on the menu in our household. Thanks for sharing!! - 02 Dec 2012
Delicious and simple to make. I used to make something very similar when I was a student, but I lost the recipe some years ago, so this really brought back some fond memories. I did make one or two small changes though. Firstly, I didn't put any celery in it. Because that seems a bit weird. Much better to just serve it with some steamed veg I thought. I also altered the quantity of butter and flour a bit, adding half as much again. I did that because my sauce was fairly watery at first, which I suspect is the result of my only having semi-skimmed milk at home. That might be worth considering if anyone else is using semi or skimmed milk. Those minor things aside, I loved this, and will make it again. - 23 Nov 2012
