So tonight's meal is going to be
TROUT AND BROCCOLI BAKE
Broccoli florets (however much you like)
25g plain flour
2 Trout fillets, skinned and cut into pieces
80g Cheddar cheese
8 Cherry tomatoes, halved
ground pepper to taste
Boil pasta for 5 minutes then add broccoli and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Make a sauce by melting the butter then adding the flour. cook for a minute then gradually whisk in the milk. Continue to cook and stir for a few minutes.
Add 50g of the cheese to the sauce and season with pepper.
Drain the pasta & broccoli and return to the pan. Add the sauce, tomatoes and fish.
Pour all the mixture into an ovenware dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Bake in the oven at 190C for half hour.
I covered with a plate halfway through to stop the pasta getting too dry on top.
We had this with some homemade garlic bread.
I made this meal tonight after being inspired by a recipe I saw on http://welshcottageonthehill.blogspot.com/ so thanks Debbie for the recipe which I adapted.
