A perennial after-school classic this, it’s a hugely comforting end to the day.
Method
  1. For the Sauce
  2. In a medium saucepan melt the butter, stir in the flour and cook over a gentle heat for a few minutes.
  3. Slowly add stock and milk a little at a time, stirring all the time to stop lumps forming. Allow to gently simmer and thicken for 10 minutes taking care to scrape the bottom of the pan.
  4. Place the oil in a non stick frying pan and fry the onion on a medium heat for a few minutes until translucent.
  5. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft.
  6. Transfer the onions and mushrooms to a plate.
  7. Add the turkey and ham to the pan and fry for 10 minutes until cooked.
  8. Meanwhile boil the pasta in a large pan until cooked. Drain and return to the pan.
  9. Add the sauce, onions, mushrooms, turkey and ham to the pasta and mix well.
  10. Transfer to an oven proof gratin or lasagne dish, sprinkle with the breadcrumbs, top with the cheese and bake at GM4 / 180C / 350F for about 12 minutes until piping hot and the cheese is melted.
