Mary Berry's Tuna Bake with added Vegetabes

I have recently bought Mary Berry's new cook book, Mary Berry Cooks
I love what Mary Berry does and I knew that thee would be a lot of recipes to keep me going.
This week I have cooked one of Mary's recipes, however, as usual I had to put a twist on it. I loved the sound of Hobie's Tuna Pasta Bake, however, for us, it was missing something.
It was missing vegetables!
This is what I got...
Mary Berry's Tuna Bake with added Vegetables
250g pasta
50g butter
50g plain flour
600mls milk
125g mature cheddar cheese
1 tin of tuna
6 medium mushrooms, chopped
1 courgette, halved and sliced
1 onion
Black pepper
1 - Cook the pasta as per instructions and the broccoli florets in boiling water
2 - Fry the onions, mushrooms and courgettes until soft
3 - Melt the butter in a pan
4 - Add the flour to the melted butter and heat for a minute
5 - Gradually add the milk, stirring continuously until you have a smooth sauce
6 - Add two thirds of the cheese and a sprinkle of black pepper
7 - Drain the pasta a broccoli and place in an oven proof dish
8 - Flake in the tuna and add the onions, mushrooms and courgettes
9 - Pour over the cheese sauce and mix through
10 - Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and place under a high grill until the cheese has melted and has browned off a little
This pasta dish is delicious served with a garlic baguette. The added vegetables make this dish a great way to get some extra goodness into the kids!
