Hungry Girl Mac and Cheese With Broccoli

"This mac and cheese is good, creamy and actaully good for you. Little kids are more likely to eat their broccoli if mac and cheese is mixed in. I used green giant broccoli with cheese and Laughing cow cheese wedges"

Ready In:
8 cups


  • 2 cups whole wheat rotini
  • 6 cups frozen broccoli in lowfat cheese sauce
  • 3 wedges light spreadable swiss cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper


  • In a large pot, prepare pasta according to the instructions on the package; drain well and set aside.
  • While pasta is cooking, place contents of the broccoli and sauce package in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave until sauce has melted and broccoli is hot, 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Once the bowl is cool enough to handle, remove it from the microwave and add cooked pasta. Unwrap cheese wedges and add those as well.
  • Mix thoroughly, ensuring that the wedged cheese is evenly distributed and the pasta and broccoli are coated in cheese sauce. Season with salt and pepper, if using. Garnish with parsley, if using.

Even though I am still young (25) Life experince has aged me alot. I learned to cook at both of my grandmother's knees (One southern American, one southern Irish) when I was about five. By ten I started collecting cookbooks and experinmenting on my own. As a latch key kid I cooked for my four younger brothers and sisters. My mom ran a small deli before she died when I was 17 so alot of my recies debuted there. Now I run my own catering Buisness. I am married to a wnderful man for five years now. I am a six year old daughter, sons who are four and three. We are also raising my 14 year old sister and nine Year old stepsister and have a 16 year old foster daughter, all of which love cooking with me. I am writing a cookbook with the hopes that when I pass I can leave my recipes for them My cookbook collection has now reached over 1200. Thank you for trying and reviewing my recipes.. <img src="">
