    I made this last night and it was amazing- I made a few changes:
    1.5 C of Unsweetened Almond milk added to 1.5 C Lactose Free Half & Half
    5 T of Ghee in place of butter for the roux
    Omitted Worcestershire sauce

    Caramelized 3 small onions, in olive oil (set aside in a bowl when done, about 35 min)
    then added to the same pan a few leftover strips of bacon, cut up very small, set aside with caramelized onions.
    Added onions & bacon with the steamed broccoli….BOMB.

    This has way too much black pepper in it. I didn’t even put in the full amount called for and it’s still too much. It probably only needs 1/2 not 1 1/2 teaspoon.

    I followed the directions and it came out good. My family already asking when will I make this again

    Can this be frozen and if so how would you do it?

    Can frozen broccoli be used for this Mac and Cheese dish?

    Has anyone tried baking this? It looks fabulous, but I like my mac and cheese with the crispy texture the top gets in baking. I’m concerned the broccoli would overcook.

      I always finish this with baking in a casserole dish. Comes out wonderful.

    Myyyyyy goodness! Best mac and cheese I’ve ever made…my husband loved it as well! (I added some crispy bacon during the last step with the noodles and broccoli and also threw some on the top) but everything else I followed the same. Very flavorful.

    This looks great!! I have to prep it in the morning before serving at night. Has anyone ever prepped it, refrigerated it for cooking hours later? Thinking I may have to gently heat in low oven prior to broiling, correct?

    Does anyone know if you can substitute goat milk (full fat) for regular milk?

    Has anyone halved this recipe?? I’m planning to make it but for the two of us this would be way too much; looks very good and am hoping that my adjustments will not affect the outcome.

    This was tasty, but it is simpler if you put the broccoli into the pasta water with four minutes left on the timer. One less burner used and one less thing to clean.

      Boiling the broccoli would cause it to lose most of ya nutrients in to the water. Always a better option to steam, nutritionally :)

    I can see adding a little prosciutto or bacon crumbles to this. I gotta watch my pasta intake though. (diabetic)
