Cheesy Baked Broccoli Macaroni Cheese

A twist to the classic macaroni cheese, I added some broccoli to it. Now somehow, cheese and veges just go well together doesnt it? I love this addition of the crunch texture. Not to mention, it is good for us. LOL I have a small packet of prawns and squid left so this sort of became a seafood baked pasta. A little fancy for macaroni and cheese but all worth it for a quick and hearty dinner!

Cheesy Baked Broccoli Macaroni Cheese (serves 6)
250 grams macaroni cooked drained and set aside

1 tablespoon of spread
1 tablespoon of flour
1 cup of milk
1 cup of cheese + 1/2 cup of cheese
1 tablespoon of grainy mustard.
1 broccoli chopped
1-2 cups of prawns
150 grams of squid cleaned and chopped

Preheat Oven to 200C. Melt spread in saucepan. Add flour and cook till it turns golden in colour. Add millk and whisk till smooth. Add 1/4 cup of more if too thick. Add cheese and stir till it melts. Taste and season.

Pour sauce over pasta and toss it with all the veges and seafood. Spoon into pan and sprinkle cheese on it. Bake for 30 minutes.

I can never have enough cheese in my diet. I'm making Hawaiian baked rice for dinner tonight. I like your cheesy cheese casserole :D

Nothing plain and boring definitely compared to just macaroni and cheese.

Beautiful. I really enjoy seafood in my macaroni and cheese, so this is right up my alley. Cheese and veg do go great together, though I think it is the cheese, it seems to make everything better. Thanks for sharing this with Presto Pasta Nights this week.
