  1. 1. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add onion and cook until softened. Stir in capsicum, broccoli and zucchini. Cover, and steam vegetables for one minute or until just tender.
  2. 2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, add flour stirring thoroughly for 1 minute. Add the milk in a slow stream, stirring constantly to prevent lumps until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the grated cheddar, vegetables, pasta, salmon, parsley, lemon rind and seasonings. Place into a large capacity baking dish.
  3. 3. Roughly chop the foccacia to make chunky bread crumbs, sprinkle breadcrumbs and parmesan over the pasta mixture and bake at 200°C for 25 minutes, or until bread crumbs are golden. Serve with a crisp green salad.
