You guys, you’re going to love this Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese.  It’s a real 1 pot, 3 ingredient, 15 minute meal and it’s one of my favorite cheesy pasta dishes.

1 pot – seriously.  
3 ingredients – Noodles, cheese and broccoli.  Boom, easy.
15 minutes – A real 15 minute meal. Not 15 minutes plus prep time.  You might even finish in 13 minutes!

With recent chilly nights where I wrap a blanket around me, I crave comfort food. I want it hot.  I want it cheesy.  But I also want some vegetables because a garden girl always want some freshness.  Plus I like to think that when you add vegetables to recipes it makes them healthy.  Like Glazed Carrot Donuts,  Red Bean Brownies, Sinful Chocolate Black Bean Brownies or Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese.  See, all healthy recipes. You agree, right?  Ok, great.

So Broccoli and Macaroni and Cheese was the only way to go.  But with comfort food, I want it quick.  That way I don’t have to get out of my warm blanket for more time.  I could wear my pink house robe while cooking to stay warm, but trust me, noone wants to see that.
