Simple & Tasty Leftover Roast Turkey & Baked Ham Cheesy Pasta Bake

And the Annual Conundrum of what to do with all the Tasty Christmas Dinner leftovers begins! Usually there is more Turkey & Ham prepared than any one Household can eat. Well I decided to turn mine into a Gorgeous Filling & Tasty, Healthy Pasta Bake with Petit Pois & a Silky Cheese Sauce for just 12 propoints a serving. This will serve 4 hungry people. I hope you had a Wonderful Christmas Day

150g Roast Turkey Diced

150g Baked Ham Diced

200g Dried Pasta Shapes

80g Frozen Petit Pois Peas

1 Onion Finely Diced

1 Clove Garlic

25g Flour

450ml Skimmed Milk

80g Grated Reduced Fat Cheddar

20g Grated Parmesan

1/4 Tsp English Mustard

Handful of Chopped Fresh Parsley

Salt & Black Pepper  

Preheat your oven to 180c. Soften the diced onion in a large frying pan coated with sprayoil. Crush in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds then add the peas and the cooked meat to the pan and reduce the heat. Meanwhile cook the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water for 10 minutes. While the pasta is cooking, add the flour to a separate saucepan and gradually stir in the milk whisking continuously until it begins to thicken into a sauce, this will take about 7 to 10 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir through the grated parmesan, most of the cheddar and the mustard. Season the cheese sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Drain the pasta and add it to the frying pan with the onion & meat mixture and pour over the cheese sauce, sprinkle in the chopped parsley & mix the whole lot together very well with a wooden spoon so all the ingredients are coated with the sauce. Transfer to an oven proof dish and sprinkle over the remaining cheese. Bake for approximately 30 minutes until heated through. Serve & Enjoy!
