How to make Cheesy Pasta Casserole With Broccoli And Cheese Recipe

  1. To begin making the Cheesy Pasta Casserole With Broccoli And Cheese Recipe, we will first cook the pasta along with salt in boiling water until al dente.

  2. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it from the hot water and run it under cold water immediately to stop the process of cooking. Drain the pasta from its water and drizzle a bit of olive oil to prevent it from sticking to each other. Keep the pasta aside.

  3. To make the sauce, into a saucepan, stir together the cream cheese, the cream and the milk. Add in the dijon mustard, salt, crushed black pepper and the herbs. Stir on medium heat until the sauce begins to boil and the cream cheese is dissolved completely. Keep the sauce aside.

  4. The next step is to stir fry the vegetables. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a wok, add in the grated garlic and the broccoli florets.

  5. Sprinkle some salt and stir fry the broccoli until slightly tender. Don’t let the broccoli over cook, as it will get tossed along with the pasta and the sauce as well.

  6. To the same wok in which you stir fried the broccoli, stir in the cooked pasta and finally the cheesy white sauce. Check the salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste. Stir fry the pasta for a couple of minutes and turn off the heat

  7. Finally stir in the grated parmesan cheese and serve the Cheesy Broccoli Pasta immediately.

  8. Serve Cheesy Pasta Casserole With Broccoli And Cheese Recipe as a one pot meal along with Grilled Winter Vegetable Salad Recipe and No-Bake Strawberry Cream Cheese Dessert Recipe.
