The original recipe is tasty, just not exactly how we prefer it. The recipe I list doesn't have any meat in it, but we really thought it would be even better with some ground beef or cubed ham so you might give that a try too.
Ingredients for 2-4 servings (depending on how hungry Hubs is):
- 6 oz whole wheat pasta
- 12 oz broccoli (I used frozen)
- 1 Tbsp butter or margarine
- 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup shredded 2% cheddar (plus a little to sprinkle on top)
- salt and pepper
- parmesan cheese for sprinkling on top
Melt butter and cook onions on low for a few minutes in a skillet. Next, add flour and stir/cook for another minute. Add milk and chicken broth. Stir and turn heat up to medium-high until it starts boiling. Cook for about five minutes on medium until the sauce gets thicker. At this point you can add any salt/pepper you want.
Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Stir the sauce, pasta, and broccoli in a greased baking dish. Sprinkle the top with cheddar and parmesan and bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes.
Aaand I didn't take any pictures,
the recipe on Feeding my Temple :) The original also makes more servings (although the proportions are different, we wanted more broccoli and onion). I hope everybody is having a good week!
