No-Bake Macaroni and Cheese

No-Bake Macaroni and Cheese

No-Bake Macaroni and Cheese

Ingredients

8 ounces whole-wheat elbow noodles (2 cups)
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped broccoli
1 3/4 cups low-fat milk, divided
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
3/4 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta for 4 minutes. Add frozen broccoli and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the pasta and broccoli are just tender, 4 to 5 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 1/2 cups milk in another large pot over medium-high heat until just simmering.
  3. Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup milk, flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl until combined. Add the flour mixture to the simmering milk; return to a simmer and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and whisk in Cheddar, Parmesan and mustard until the cheese is melted.
  5. Drain the pasta and broccoli and add to the cheese sauce. Return to the heat and cook, stirring, over medium-low heat, until heated through, about 1 minute.

Serves 4.

That does NOT look like whole wheat macaroni in that picture. It's way too white. I know the ww is not as pretty, but that's just wrong.

Wow I've never put broccoli in my mac and cheese, that sounds wonderful. I usually add a pinch of cayenne to mine for a kick

I can't see the recipe either and have run into the same issue repeatedly. Why were the recipes removed from the main body? I enjoyed reading the intro and scanning the recipe in the same quick review.
