Serving Size: 8

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 (14.5oz) Whole Grain Elbow Macaroni
2 Cups Fat Free Milk or Milk of Choice
1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Head Fresh Broccoli (or frozen Florets) about 2 cups
1 (8 oz) Reduced Fat Shredded Cheddar Cheese

DIRECTIONS:

1) Preheat oven to 400F. Meanwhile cook macaroni according to package directions. Once cooked drain and set aside.

2) Cut Broccoli into small Florets and let boil for about 1 minute (we like the broccoli to be crunchy you can cook more). Also drain and set aside.

3) Mix flour with salt and pepper in a large saucepan and slowly add in theย  milk. Whisk under medium heat.ย  Once flourr is dissolved add 3/4th of the cheese into the mixture and mix. Lower heat and let the cheese melt. This takes less than a minute.

4) To the cheese mixture add the pasta and broccoli and some more salt to taste and mix well.

5) Pour the cheesy pasta into a bake proof dish. Add the rest of shredded cheese on top. Place in oven for a few minutes until cheese is melted.

6) Remove and Serve!

Tips: If you like the buttery taste in Mac and cheese you can add 2 Tbs light butter when you add the cheese in the saucepan. We like this just the way it is without butter.
