Tasty comfort casserole that I threw together tonight. My husband loved it, so I thought I'd share.

Directions

  1. Start noodles cooking according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, season beef & onion with salt & pepper and brown together in large skillet.
  3. When beef starts to brown, melt butter in separate saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Pull rosemary from sprigs and add to butter.
  5. Stir until bubbly.
  6. Add flour and stir until blended.
  7. Gradually add milk and 2 cranks of the mill pepper, stirring constantly.
  8. Bring to boil; cook & stir 2 minutes.
  9. Drain pasta.
  10. Drain beef.
  11. Preheat oven to 400°.
  12. Combine beef, broccoli, milk sauce, and cheddar in the skillet.
  13. Return to medium heat, stirring until cheddar is melted.
  14. Stir in pasta.
  15. Spread in lightly greased 13x9 pan.
  16. Top with grated parmesan.

I thought this was pretty good! I did add extra spices (thyme, parsley, extra rosemary, salt & pepper) and I also added two cloves of garlic with the onion. My flour/butter mixture turned out just fine. Still, with all the other spices added, it was not as flavourful or exciting as some other dishes, but for a simple meal with ingredients that I usually have on hand anyway, my husband and I didn't mind it at all!

Perhaps I didn't use enough rosemary but I found this dish very bland. I'm not sure why you need to put it in a casserole instead of just finishing it in the skillet and the flour/butter binder isn't tasty or smooth in texture. Ok but I don't think I'll try it again.
