Number of Servings: 10


    1 lb whole wheat macaroni
    8 oz extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
    1/3 cup whole wheat flour
    3 tbsp butter
    2 cans evaporated 1% milk
    1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
    3 cup broccoli (chopped)
    1 tbsp dijon mustard (or 1/2 tbsp mustard powder)
    pepper to taste


1. Set a pot of water to boil for the macaroni and broccoli. Cook the macaroni per package instructions; add broccoli when there are about five minutes left. Drain and rinse with cold water, set aside.

2. In a large pot, make a roux with the butter and flour. Slowly add the evaporated milk and broth, mixing constantly so as not to produce a lumpy sauce (this is easier to do if you combine the milk and broth in a measuring cup and warm it in a microwave before adding to the pot).

3. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes, or until it thickens. Then add the mustard and parmesan, stirring constantly.

4. Remove pot from heat and add the cheddar, stirring constantly. Then stir in the macaroni and broccoli earlier set aside.

5. Put pot back on burner to gently warm the mixture, stirring frequently.
