1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Sauté the onion, green pepper and garlic until translucent. Add the mince and allow it to brown, then add the basil, mushrooms and tomatoes. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Season with a pinch of sugar, salt and freshly ground black pepper.

2. Make a white sauce. Heat the butter in another saucepan and stir in the flour. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Stir until thickened and season to taste.

3. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet, then drain well.

4. Layer the mince and the pasta in an ovenproof dish. Top with the white sauce and sprinkle with grated Cheddar cheese. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Serve with a Greek salad.
