Baby’s Broccoli Mac ‘n Cheese

This hearty dish fills my baby's belly with nutrient-dense broccoli and carbohydrates she needs to grow. Its also her new favorite snow day dinner. DSC_0971 (2)Broccoli is loaded with many vitamins, minerals, and fibers. It also contains high amounts of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, iron and zinc. If your little one suffers from gas try adding a 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger to the sauce as it reduces. You can also substitute diced mushrooms for the broccoli and cauliflower. Ingredients:
  • 1/2 box of your favorite pasta - cooked al-dente
  • 1 cup frozen (or fresh) broccoli florets - cooked until tender and diced
  • 1/2 cheese of your choosing (i love using a combo of swiss and shredded mexican cheese)
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 T all purpose flour
  To Make:
  1. Combine olive oil and flour over medium low heat.
  2. Slowly add cheese until completely blended.
