Tips

I used Spicy Brown mustard and it worked well. I was definately surprised on the calorie intake of this dish, however, I feel it must be healthier than the store bought brands and I needed to put in here so I could track it. LOL

Directions

bring water to boil and add pasta. After 5 minutes add brocolli florets. Cook until pasta al dente (about 3 more minutes) drain. Place in bowl or back in pot.

In medium saucepan put in Olive oil and heat with butter on med low heat. Add finely chopped onions and cook until translucent and soft. Stir in flour and form a roux. the book says to let roux bubble, but mine was too thick so I let "simmer" for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add in 3 cups of milk, broth, and seasonings...turn up the heat and whisk until boiling.

Once it boils turn heat down to about medium-medium low and add the cheddar cheese and about a tsp of dijon mustard, stirring until it melts in.

pour sauce over the pasta/broccoli mixture and toss.

Serve with a nice salad.
