Amt. Measure Ingredient
bunchbroccoli florets
smallOnion, chopped
tablespoonsall-purpose flour
cups, shreddedshredded cheddar cheese
ouncesCheese, parmesan, grated
teaspoonhot sauce
dashblack pepper
Sequence Step
1get a lg pot of salted water on to boil. rinse the broxcoli well and cut it into small florets.
2the pasta and broccoli will be cooked in the same pot to save on dishes and time. when the water comes to a full boil, add the pasta. set a timer for 8 min then add the broccoli. cook the pasta and broccoli for 2 min more and then pour everything into a colander to drain. set them aside until ready to add to the cheese sauce.
3while the pasta and broccoli are doing their thin, you can begin the cheese sauce. finely dice the onion and cook with butter over med heat until softened. (2-3 min)
4Add flour to the butter and onion. The flour and butter will form a pasta like a mixture (roux). Using a whisk, stir ad cook the roux for 1-2 min more taking care not to let it scorch. this slightly cooks the flour preventing the cheese sauce from having an overly flour or paste like flavor
5Add the milk and whisk well to dissolve all the flour clumps. Add freshly cracked pepper at this point. Bring the mixture up to a simmer (ou may need to raise heat slightly). when the sauce reaches a simmer, it will begin to thicken. When it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, it''s time to add the cheese
6Turn the burner off and whisk in the shredded cheese (and parm if using) until it is fully melted in. Give the cheese sauce a taste and add salt, pepper and/or hot sauce to taste.
7only you have the cheese sauce seasoned to your liking, stir in the cooked and drained pasta and broccoli
