Heat the oven to 190ºC/170ºC fan/gas mark 5. Cook the pasta for about two thirds of the recommended time and drain. Tip back into the pan.
Meanwhile, melt the butter and flour together in a small pan to make a roux. Turn the heat off, gradually blend in the milk to make a smooth sauce, then return to the heat and whisk gently for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly. Whisk in the mustard powder and two thirds of the cheese and allow to melt, then season the sauce with salt, pepper and a little nutmeg.
Pour the sauce over the pasta and mix well. Turn into a baking dish and scatter the remaining cheese over. Top with the halved cherry tomatoes and cook in the oven for about 25 minutes until golden and bubbling. Serve with a green salad.
