1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / gas mark 4.

2. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and add the pasta. Cook for 12 minutes, or according to packet instructions, and drain.

3. In a separate saucepan, cook the broccoli florets in boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes. Then drain and plunge the broccoli into cold water to stop it overcooking.

4. In a medium heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter over a low heat, then add the flour, stirring until it forms a paste. Stir for a minute until the flour turns a sandy texture and colour. Gradually add the milk, stirring well. Simmer until the sauce thickens to a rich consistency.

5. Add the blue cheese, mustard and pepper to the sauce and stir through.

6. Add the pasta and broccoli to the sauce and stir until coated.

7. Transfer the broccoli and pasta mixture to an ovenproof ceramic dish. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and the vegetarian Italian-style hard cheese, then bake until the top is golden brown.

8. Serve with salad leaves dressed with lemon juice and olive oil.
