All-In-One Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

This is a quick meal I make sometimes after work, when it's just me. Nothing fancy or gormet, just plain comfort food. I sometimes stir in a handful of grated cheddar or italian blend cheese at the end to give it a little extra cheesiness!
