Whats for Dinner- Easy Greeny Mac n Cheesy!!

So what do you make when you don't really feel like cooking, try this recipe. A great creamy mac and cheese with the veggies right in there, who wont love that.

Easy Greeny Mac and Cheesy- i channeled my inner cornball for this great name, hehe


  • ½ lb Multigrain Penne
  • 1 C Frozen or Fresh broccoli florets

Cheese Sauce

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • ¼ onion, minced
  • 1 ½ - 2 C Chicken Stock
  • ½ C shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  1. Bring salted water to a boil, then add pasta. Cook for 7 mins, then add in broccoli. Cook for additional 5 mins or until pasta is aldente and broccoli is bright green and tender.
  2. Drain in colander.
  3. In the same pot melt butter on medium low heat. Sautee the onions and grate the garlic directly into the melted butter and onions.
  4. Add in the flour and whisk constantly until the flour cooks, making a “rue” (this is when the flour no longer looks white, and the mixture takes on a cream colored paste like texture).
  5. Add in the stock and whisk constantly in a figure 8 motion (this keeps the rue from sticking the corners and gets the liquid fully incorporated).
  6. Whisk until all the lumps are gone and the sauce thicken.
  7. Turn the heat to low and season with salt/pepper and organic seasoning salt (to taste), add in the cheese and continue to whisk in figure 8 until the cheese completely melted in and smooth and creamy.. YUM YUM!
  8. Put the drained pasta and broccoli in the cheese sauce and mix well, turn of heat.
  9. Stand for 5mins, then serve!

Happy Eating!!
