Cheesy Beef and Broccoli Pasta
This Cheesy Beef and Broccoli Pasta is one of my favorite midweek meals. It’s like a take on mac and cheese but with some more flavor and ingredients. It’s one of those recipes that you can throw together in only 5 minutes, and while it cooks, you can busy yourself with other tasks.
Start by browning beef and season with salt and pepper. Whisk together the milk, stock, flour, mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper. Drain the excess fat and return the meat to the pan. Add onion and season lightly with salt and pepper. When the onion starts to soften, add garlic and sauté. Pour in the milk mixture and pasta and mix well. Let the mixture come to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer before adding broccoli. Cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
Add Cheddar cheese and mix well and then taste and adjust seasoning.
