BROCCOLI SHELLS N' CHEESE






BROCCOLI SHELLS N' CHEESE




Broccoli shells n' cheese is a classic American dish that goes well along side any meal, or as a hearty side dish. 100% real, 100% homemade.

INGREDIENTS

·    8 oz. pasta ($0.55)
·    1/2 lb. frozen broccoli florets* ($0.90)
·    1/2 small onion, about 1/2 cup diced ($0.18)
·    3 Tbsp butter ($0.33)
·    3 Tbsp all-purpose flour ($0.03)
·    2.5 cups milk ($0.65)
·    8 oz. 2 cups sharp cheddar, shredded ($1.89)
·    1/4 cup grated parmesan ($0.24)
·    Salt and pepper to taste ($0.05)

INSTRUCTIONS

1.      Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta. Once boiling, add the pasta and continue to boil until the pasta is tender. Drain the pasta in a colander and set it aside until ready to use.
2.      Meanwhile, allow the broccoli to thaw. Once partially thawed, chop the florets into smaller, bite-sized pieces, and set them aside to fully thaw while you prepare the rest of the dish.
3.      While the pasta is cooking, begin the cheese sauce. Finely dice the onion and add it to a sauce pot with the butter. Cook the onion and butter over medium heat until the onions are softened (about 2-3 minutes).
