Fry Light, for spraying
2 leeks, trimmed and sliced
2 courgettes, sliced
113g/4oz mushrooms, sliced
57g/2oz sun dried tomatoes
681g/1½ lb leftover cooked pasta tubes or shapes
1 tbsp chopped parsley

For the white sauce:

2 level tbsp cornflour
284ml/½pt skimmed milk
142g/5oz fat free natural fromage frais
1 level tsp Dijon mustard
pinch of grated nutmeg
salt and freshly ground black pepper
57g/2oz reduced fat Cheddar cheese, grated
