New Cookbook!

So a few weeks ago I was at Barnes and Noble and I bought this cookbook on clearance.

I was so excited to dig in and find some new favorite recipes! I love Macaroni and Cheese so when I flipped to this page, I knew I had to make it.

It didn't take too long and it was so tasty. Especially with some fresh bread from the folks at Publix.

Old Fashioned Macaroni & Cheese with Broccoli

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (I used shells)
3 cups broccoli florets
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/4 cups milk
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions, adding broccoli during last 5 minutes of cooking time. Drain pasta and broccoli; return to saucepan.

Meanwhile, melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Add flour, salt and pepper; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in milk; bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in cheese until melted.

Add sauce to pasta and broccoli; stir until blended.

Mac-n-Cheese is also one of my favorites. I love Paula Deen's Lady-N-Son's mac recipe. Try it, you might like it too.
I love your dinner plates.
