Our range of kids meals is guaranteed to turn hungry little monsters into happy little monsters. And they're made just like you would at home: no nasty additives; no added salt; and at least one portion of veg in every meal. What's more, they cook from frozen in minutes. All of the meals for one are complete meals in themselves so there's no need to cook up anything extra.

Also perfect for those with smaller appetites.

How We Make It

We use elbow-shaped pasta in this dish, which we partially cook to keep the pasta al dente for when it’s reheated.

The traditional cheese sauce is made by melting butter with flour to make a roux, to which we add milk, mature Cheddar and a touch of English mustard (top tip – a small amount of English mustard added to your cheese sauce will really bring out the cheesy flavour!). We then blend cauliflower florets to a fine powder, which we stir into the cheese sauce along with a handful of peas to add some colour.

The topping is made from butternut squash which is lightly blended and slowly cooked in olive oil until soft. We then mix it with more of our grated mature Cheddar and sprinkle over the top give a lovely cheesy finish to the dish.
