Ham Pea Noodle Gratin Recipe

(Low-Fat Recipe)

Ingredients:  Serves 4

10 oz (275 g) Italian noodles or tagliatelle

oz (15 g) slightly salted butter

2 level tablespoons plain flour

level teaspoon dried sage

level teaspoon dried marjoram

level teaspoon dried thyme

level teaspoon ground mace

pint (425 ml) skimmed milk

Freshly ground black pepper

6 oz (175 g) cooked ham with fat removed, diced

8 oz (225 g) cooked peas

3 tomatoes, sliced

1 oz (45 g) fresh fine white breadcrumbs



Cook the noodles and drain.  Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour, sage, marjoram, thyme and mace.  Cook over a gentle heat for 1 minute, then gradually stir in the milk.  Bring to the boil, stirring continuously, until the sauce thickens slightly.  Season with pepper, then mix in the ham and peas, and simmer for 2 minutes to heat thoroughly.  Mix the pasta in until it is coated with the sauce, then turn everything into a heatproof serving dish.  Arrange the sliced tomatoes on top and sprinkle with the breadcrumbs.  Put the gratin under a hot grill for about 3 minutes, until browned on top.  A green salad or a cucumber and fruit salad goes well with this dish.  For a change of flavor you can use cooked prawns or smoked haddock in place of the ham.


Note:  Savory ham and sweet green peas are combined with a herb sauce in this simple dish of Italian noodles which is finished with a crisp, bright topping.
