Play video 'Broccoli mac and cheese✨
.
▪️12 oz. Medium Shell Pasta▪️4 Tbsp Butter▪️1/4 Cup Flour▪️4 Cups Skim Milk▪️2+1/2 tsp Kosher Salt▪️1 tsp Black Pepper▪️1 Dash Nutmeg▪️1 Dash Cayenne Pepper (optional)▪️1/2 tsp Garlic Powder▪️1/2 tsp Paprika▪️1 lb. Frozen Broccoli Florets, thawed and roughly chopped▪️2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese▪️Parmesan Cheese, for serving (optional)▪️Toasted Panko Breadcrumbs, for serving (optional)▪️
.
🌱Vegan Modification: Sub in olive oil for butter, oat milk for milk, and plant based cheese for cheese
.
1️⃣ Bring a pot of generously salted water to a boil and then boil pasta until very al dente (1-2 mins less than package directions because it will finish cooking in the sauce); reserve 1 cup of pasta water just in case it's needed
2️⃣ In a pot over medium high heat, melt the butter and then add the flour; cook the flour whisking constantly for 1 minute and then start gradually pouring in the milk 1/2 cup at a time, whisking so that the milk gets fully incorporated before adding more
3️⃣ Once all of the milk is added, continue whisking until the white sauce starts to bubble and has thickened slightly, then add the kosher salt (2+1/2 tsp), pepper, nutmeg, cayenne, garlic powder, and paprika
4️⃣ Stir in the broccoli and pasta and cook for 2-3 more mins until pasta is desired tenderness (if your sauce looks thick you can add a little pasta water but I didn't need to)
5️⃣ Stir in the cheddar cheese, turn off the heat, and enjoy! Option to top with Parmesan cheese or toasted panko breadcrumbs
