Veggie Casserole

Submitted by: CHUBBYGIRL07

Introduction

A versatile casserole - add meat (cubed chicken, cooked ham, or turkey would work best) or use a variety of veggies. A versatile casserole - add meat (cubed chicken, cooked ham, or turkey would work best) or use a variety of veggies.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 yellow squash (I like yellow to add color), cut into quarters
    2 stalks fresh broccoli, cut into bite-sized pcs
    1/2 fresh cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pcs
    (You could also add - or substitute - 1 cup canned corn, peas, green beans, etc. I wouldn't use more than 4 veggies at a time. If adding meat, use a max of 3 veggies).

    2 TBSP flour
    2 TBSP butter
    2 cups skim milk
    16 oz Light Velveeta cheese, cubed
    2 cups elbow macaroni

Directions

Clean and chop all veggies. Cube cheese.
Melt butter in a 6qt pot over medium heat. When butter is completely melted, add flour and stir rapidly until flour is completely absorbed and sauce is thick. Next, add milk and cubed cheese and turn heat down to medium-low. Stir occasionally as cheese melts.

Once sauce is started, steam all fresh veggies and cook pasta. (I like using a double boiler - you can cook pasta and steam veggies all at once).

Preheat oven to 350.
When sauce is smooth and veggies and pasta are cooked, mix veggies and drained pasta with cheese sauce. Place mixture in a greased 9X13'' pan. Cover and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until sauce is bubbly and thick.

Let casserole sit for 5 minutes before serving.

  • this was absolutely amazing! wow! I only baked mine for about 25 minutes. This was sooooo good! I used less noodles and twice the veggies so it was a bit healthier. The cheese sauce was to die for! - 4/16/07
