  1. Preheat the grill to high. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. Add the broccoli to the boiling water 5 minutes before the pasta is ready. Drain and set aside.
  2. To make the white sauce, melt the margarine/butter in a large saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook over a medium heat for 1 minute. Turn down the heat and add only as much milk as the mixture can absorb to make a slightly smoother paste. Work the paste to a smooth and glossy consistency before adding a little more milk. Repeat until the paste has a creamy consistency. Gradually stir in the remaining milk. Turn up the heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce develops a thicker consistency. Stir in the mustard, mixed herbs and half the cheese. Add the pasta and broccoli and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon the mixture into an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese and grill for 5 minutes or until the top is a golden and bubbling.
