    Start by infusing the milk. Put the milk and mayonnaise in a pan set over a medium-low heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and leave to infuse while you cook the pasta.

    Make the sauce. Set a large saucepan with the butter over a medium heat. Melt the butter and add the garlic and spring onion. Cook for 1 minute then stir in the flour. Mix to a smooth paste, then add the milk a ladle at a time, whisking to incorporate. Do this until you have a smooth, glossy and slightly thick sauce.

    While the pasta bakes, make the green bean side dish. Cook the greens in a large pan of boiling salted water for 4 minutes, adding the asparagus for the last 2 minutes. Drain then refresh in cold water. Leave to drain.
