    3)  Do not over cook the veg, you still want them quite firm

    4)  While the pasta and veg are cooking, make the cheese sauce

    5)  Melt butter in a pan, add flour to make a roux.  Stir all the time to prevent it going lumpy or burning

    6)  Cook out roux for a few minutes to prevent a floury taste in the sauce

    7)  Slowly add milk, whisking gently all the time until the sauce thickens

    8)  Add grated cheese, stir to melt into sauce.  Keep some for sprinkling on top
