Preheat the oven to 180 °C and grease an ovenproof dish with nonstick spray.

1. Make a white sauce: heat the butter in a small saucepan over medium to low heat and stir in the flour to form a smooth paste. Slowly whisk in the milk, season with salt and pepper and continue whisking until thickened.

2. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the mushrooms with the thyme  until browned.

3. Mix the mushrooms and remaining ingredients, setting a bit of the cheese aside. Pour the white sauce over and mix well.

Spoon into the prepared dish, sprinkle the remaining cheese over and bake for 15-20 minutes or  until the cheese has browned.
