Big Mike's pasta

    35 min

    I put this together one day and thought it was delicious, so I decided to share it with others. To make it easier, use a jar of shop-bought white sauce.

    3 people made this

    Serves: 2 

    • 120g pasta
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 2 green chillies, minced
    • 1 smoked sausage, chopped
    • 7 mushrooms, chopped
    • 4 tablespoons sweetcorn
    • 25g butter
    • 25g plain flour
    • 300ml milk
    • 25g cheese, grated
    • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
    • 1 pinch salt

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Put the pasta into a large pan with salted boiling water cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until al dente.
    2. While pasta is cooking put the olive oil in a pan and fry the onion and green chillies until soft; stir in the smoked sausage and mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in sweetcorn and set aside on a low heat with lid on pan.
    3. To make cheese sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan and add flour to form a roux; cook for 2 minutes to cook out the flour. Add milk slowly, whisking continuously until sauce is thickened. Simmer for 5 minutes, remove from heat, add cheese sauce, mustard and salt to taste and put back on low heat.
    4. Drain pasta; return to pan. Stir in the sausage mixture and cheese sauce well. Serve in bowls with grated cheese on top.


    If cheese sauce becomes too thick add extra milk.
