Add a teaspoon of olive oil to the cooked pasta and toss the pasta to stop it sticking together.3.In another saucepan, add the butter and flour and cook it for a few minutes until the rawness of the flour is gone.4.Add the milk gradually and keep whisking the sauce to ensure all the milk is incorporated into the flour and there are no lumps.5.Once all the milk is added keep whisking until sauce thickens, it should easily coat the back of a spoon.At this stage add half the cheese and whisk it in.Add the nutmeg, salt and pepper and stir it in.6.Take the sauce off the heat and pour the sauce over the cooked pasta and mix it all together.7.Preheat the grill to medium .8.Spoon the saucy pasta into an ovenproof baking dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese over it.Place the pasta dish under the grill and cook until the cheese melts and it starts to bubble and turn golden brown.9.Carefully remove the baked cheesy pasta from the grill.
