Method

Step 1

Steam the carrots and beans. Heat butter in a pan and add oil as well followed by crushed garlic. Now add the flour and cook it for 2-3 minutes.

Step 2

Next add milk and water and keep stirring. As it cooks it will get thicker. Once the sauce is cooked, add the veggies – corn, peas, steamed carrots and beans and the Italian seasoning. Add the salt, pepper and sugar and stir. Take it off heat.

Step 3

Grease 4 individual ramekins with butter. Fill it with the prepared filling. Sprinkle grated cheese on each of them.
