Mac n cheese with broccoli

A more adult version of the classic mac and cheese I usually make. Thank you! I was a little nervous about how this would turn out as I was mixing the cheeses together I have a tendency to mess up cheesy things , but it was super yummy and easy to make. My favorite thing in life is time spent around the table. And all the better with some seriously tasty food to bring us all together. Print Recipe.

Warms up the flavors a bit. My daughter and I made this last Sunday and froze the leftovers in portions. It's better than the more fattening original! Thanks so much for helping these foodies stay on track! This is delicious! I made another version of this that you posted with spinach which I liked, but I really love it with the broccoli!

I'm not on WW, but I really like to and try to eat fairly healthy and you make it so easy. I just made this a few nights ago and we're still snacking on it! I didn't have sharp cheddar, just medium, so I added extra parm. It definitely needs the sharp cheddar to really add a kick! I added a pinch of red pepper flakes and some random seasonings to give it the kick I couldn't with the cheese and it made it quite good!

I was thinking of trying a bit of garlic next time as well — any thoughts? I'm thinking about throwing some chicken in with this dish to beef it up a bit. How many chicken breasts would anyone suggest be the right amount using the same portions as in the recipe? I just love your food. Thanks again everyone. Hi Gina Love your site!! One question… You state 8 oz of Cheese, but then it states 2 cups.

macaroni & cheese with broccoli

Is this correct? Thank you for your recipes. I've made several other things on your site and they've all been great but this one was perfect! I made this the other night. The only change I made was adding some jarred chopped hot peppers to spice it up. Thank you so much for this website. I'm on WW and have lost 25 lbs so far. You have saved my life…Geri. I am making this tonight and can't wait! I love mac and cheese and this looks like a reasonable alternative. I am going to add some shredded chicken to mine when I make it so it's more like a complete meal all in one gotta love one dish meals.

I am anxious to see how my family likes it! They loved the simple pasta and broccoli. I'm sure this will be even better! I also added about a table spoon of dijon mustard. Another amazing recipe! Thank you so much for all you do…I adore your site! I had a lot of ripe tomatoes lying around so I sliced some up and layered them on the top under the breadcrumbs. I just want to say that you have an awesome site for all — and especially those of us watching our weight for many reasons! Thank you for all you do! I made this, and I am going against the grain here. It was bland and awful.

I don't usually follow recipes much, but I followed this one to a T. What a drag. I was looking forward to it because of the reviews. I'll stick to my own high protein low fat mac n cheese… Was worth a try, though. I made this tonight for husband and myself. I am planning on making it for his family that is coming into town this weekend. I made this with escarole we have a CSA share and have to find creative ways to get rid of unusual greens and it was delicious! I cut out the stems and the leaves wilted nicely. I made this the day after you posted it and thought it was delicious.

I made a few modifications due to supplies on hand — half mexican blend, half lo-fat medium cheddar. I would definitely use a sharp cheddar next time. I also used the smart pasta penne noodles again, supplies on hand! The cheese sauce really stuck to the grooves in the pasta. I just made this in a half batch because there is only me in the house and I could have easily eaten the whole thing. Thanks for such a great recipe! Gina-I made this this evening for my husband and I.

I went back and forth between the spinach version of this version and figured he'd like the broccoli better. Live and learn! Made this today as I was looking for some added comfort. Turned out great and will be making it again. Thanks for all you do. Love your site and recommend it often! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I would imagine this would freeze ok before you bake it with the crumbs. Then add the crumbs when you ate ready to bake. Hi Gina, does this freeze well before or after baking? Its delicious but too much for my family…even with leftovers! Loved this one.

I didn't have regular butter, so I just subbed a tsp of olive oil with the light butter and it worked great. I didn't even bake it left off breadcrumbs , just mixed it on the stove top and let it sit a little longer and it turned out wonderful. Any chance I can use white whole wheat all-purpose flour for this? Totally forgot to buy more white flour and want to make this tonight! I've done it many times and it's tastes yummy. This looks so delicious! Next time my friends and I have a cooking and baking day at one of our off-campus friend's houses, we will definitely be making this!!

I made this for my son who is super duper skinny, so I wasn't exactly going for low fat, but I was going for vegetarian. I used soy milk, veggie broth, penne pasta instead of elbows, a bit of garlic powder, dry mustard, and a blend of cheese ends that I happened to have had on hand: fontinella, asagio, white cheddar, sharp cheddar and havarti. It came out delicious. My son is working on this third bowl right now. Just made this fabulous dish for dinner tonight! This would also be delish combined with left-over ham or chicken. Just be sure to use plain, not vanilla, and preferably unsweetened.

Dani- wow, that is awesome!!!! I am so happy I was able to help you stay on track but you did all the work so you must feel very proud!! As far as swapping out the milk for non-dairy… I'm not sure how it would taste as I haven't tried it. Although the cheese is dairy so I'm not sure why you would swap it. Perhaps you are sensitive to milk but not cheese?

Looks fabulous. I would use either no-chicken broth or veggie broth as we are all vegetarians at my house. How do you think this would be with a non-dairy milk? I'll be making this one often!!! GREAT meatless dish!!!!! Lovely recipe! Just mix the flour and milk together before adding it to the pan. I find the fat and flavors from the cheeses give the sauce more than enough to make it yummy.

Not that 2 T butter is a lot, but saving 2 T is 2 T. I have a mountain of broccoli that needs to get used up this week. This looks like a great idea. Another wonderful recipe Gina! Gina, I had to drop you a note to let you know how much you have helped me in the last 18 months. On Tuesday I reached my goal weight at WW.

Eighteen months and pounds. Your site has really helped me and, to be honest, it's been pretty easy to stay on plan with your help. One of the big keys to my success has been menu planning, I do a 2 weeks plan at a time. I'd say percent of my dinners are from your site.

Your food is family friendly and easy to make, and most importantly, it's delicious. I even love having leftovers something I never did before. You have helped me realize that eating healthy doesn't mean living on salads. So thank you so much Gina, you have truly made a huge difference in my life and the lives of my family. Keep up the great work! I have seen precious ….. I'm seriously obsessed with your website! I have loved everything I've tried. I told everyone at my W. Thanks for all your hard work.

I was just talking to my husband about wanting some Mac and Cheese and kept noticing how dry mustard is in most recipes but yet not in yours! I love how this recipe added broccoli. You must have read my mind! I just asked my partner to make mac n cheese for us this week and maybe throw in some broccoli too. We will definitely be making this soon!!

Why couldn't you use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth? That would make it vegetarian. I prefer the taste of chicken broth, but if you're vegetarian you can certainly use veggie broth. I am going to make this tonight! Question — if I have panko bread crumbs, how should I make them "seasoned"?

A few shakes of Italian seasoning? Maybe some garlic powder? Can't wait to try it! I love that you mixed in the broccoli here — it is one vegetable that my kids will always eat — and of course they always love mac and cheese. Yum — definitely going to add this to the meal plan next week! I have a head of escarole, do you think that would work also if I cut out the stems?

I've done your other mac and cheese with swiss chard and that was yummy. I'm so happy I found your blog!! I already made your whole wheat pancakes this weekend and they were delicious and easy to make. I am here to say this is perfect; I made something very similar the other day and we loved it.

I substituted peas instead of broccoli and added ham, also added celery to the rue mixture, came out delicious.

Oh My! I just finished Making this, halved the recepie but instead used colliflower and did everything as you described, after a bowl of this i can say i am hooked and will be making many more batches! I made this for dinner last night and it was fantastic! We all really enjoyed. Happy Tasty Tuesday! We love this recipe and it is featured on our Recipes for the Food Holidays of October! Thanks for sharing! Michelle- Do you still eat your broccoli with cheez whiz?

I agree, mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort food — to the point where, in a rare spate of homesickness, my boyfriend asked me to go to one of the expat stores here in Paris to pick up a few blue boxes and wieners for dinner. This sounds much more up my alley! As I always say, you only live once, so enjoy good food while you can. The problem is, that seems to happen every day!

This is probably the only way to get me to eat broccoli — mix it in with my favorite food — mac and cheese!!! Looks delish…. Nice post and beautiful photos… When it comes to real food, I want the real food no offence to anyone , including mac and cheese.
