When you want o cook any one pot meal Baked Broccoli in white sauce with Macaroni is a very good idea to cut short any cooking process. This one pot meal is a complete vegan option that is healthy and same time very tasty. Will share a non vegetarian version of the same very soon.

Ingredients to serve 5-6

  • Macaroni – 50 gms
  • Broccoli – 1 cup (Cut into bite size florets)
  • Button Mushroom – 8-10
  • Cheese – ½ cup (Grated)
  • Onion – 1 (Chopped)
  • Garlic – 5-6 pods (Chopped)
  • Milk – ½ cup
  • Flour – 2 tsp
  • Butter – 3 tsp
  • Oil – 4 Tbsp
  • Black Pepper Powder – 1 tsp
  • Salt – To taste

Steps:

  1. Boil water in a large pot adding some salt. Add macaroni and let them cook for some time. Drain the excess water and wash the macaroni under cold water. Drizzle 1 tsp oil on cooked macaroni. Toss well and keep aside. The oil will prevent the macaroni from sticking to each other.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and put chopped garlic. Sauté well. Now add chopped onion and cook till it turns translucent.
  3. Add chopped mushroom and cook till they turn soft.
  4. Next add broccoli and toss well. Add salt and half of the pepper powder. Add the cooked pasta. Remove from heat and keep aside.
  5. Take another pan and heat butter. Add flour and cook till flour turns a little brown. Add milk and mix very well. Add rest of the black pepper powder and salt. Now add ¾ of the cheese. Mix very well. This is our creamy white sauce.
  6. Add half of the white sauce to the cooked macaroni and broccoli. Mix very well.
  7. Take a oven proof baking dish and transfer the whole cooked thing in it.
  8. Now pour rest of the white sauce on it. Sprinkle the cheese on it.
  9. Preheat the oven at 180 C. Bake it for 10-15 minutes or till the top becomes a little brown here and there.
