  2. Cook pasta in a medium saucepan of boiling water as directed on packet, until al dente (just tender). Drain.
  3. Heat oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add celery and onion. Cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes, until softened slightly. Add flour. Cook, stirring a further 1 minute.
  4. Reduce heat to low. Gradually stir in milk. Add onion powder and mustard. Season with pepper. Stir constantly over a medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat.

Tips
  • Don’t throw out stale wholegrain bread. It’s perfect for making crunchy toppings or can be processed into breadcrumbs and frozen for later use.
  • Use wholegrain breadcrumbs for binding meatballs, rissoles and vegetable patties.
