Its turned out pretty good, hubby said it was the best mac n cheese hes ever had. I tweaked it a bit though: boiled the broccoli with the noodles, added garlic salt instead of salt (half the amount), more pepper, parsley, cayanne, paprika, chopped onions, sriracha. I used cream and milk, 1 1/2 cup. Feta, parm and swiss, 1/2 cup. Mixed everything togeather, poured into baking pan and topped with herbs, onion and panko. It was great.
