Wonky veg in cheese sauce with pasta

Hello Dear Reader,

I’ve had the loveliest morning catching up with an old friend; has it really been that long? It felt like yesterday but it’d been years.

It’s been another no spend week other than a grocery shop and fuel for the car. No going out, no purchases, no take always, no presents, nothing replaced. The wages have stayed put and will be transferred at the end of the month.

Today has been all about domestics, laundry, ironing, cleaning, lawn cutting and later some curtain up cycling. I’m going to take two shorter curtains and fashion them into a longer curtain. I’ll blog about that another day. 

I’ve also got veggies to use up. I’ve not eaten much this week and they were at risking of not being at their best.

Here’s what I used

100g of gluten free pasta

1 head of broccoli cut into florets

3 leeks 

1 red pepper – sliced

2 courgettes – sliced

3 sliced mushrooms

1/2 litre skimmed milk

100g half fat cheddar – grated

1 heaped tsp of Dijon mustard.

50g of corn flour 


1. Steam the broccoli and leeks.

2. Sauté the peppers, courgettes and mushrooms.

3. In a microwave proof jug, blend the flour, cheese, mustard and milk. Microwave on full heat for five minutes. Stir and keep heating then stirring until it thickens. 

4. Combine everything. Feel free to be more generous than I am with cheese.

It’s a simple supper but just my type of food. Simple Saturday supper and relatively 

healthy too. I’m going to have some ‘me’ time in my sewing room later.

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxxx

  1. Looks really tasty, I do love pasta dishes and the more simple the better. Hope there is some quilting going on in the sewing room? Enjoy x
