西兰花香蒜沙司Mac和奶酪

西兰花香蒜沙司Mac和奶酪

Some exiting news – the book is done(!) and off to print this week. I'll share some sneak peaks a little later but suffice it to say – I'm tired.I never thought I would say this but after shooting,testing,再测试,检查和重新检查这么多食谱–我变得有点”徳赢真人娱乐场cooked"out. Over the last few weeks,while working through final copy and design edits,这里有很多外卖,还有几盒通心粉和奶酪。But no one is complaining – especially not my mac & cheese-loving husband Jack.He would be more than thrilled if every night was mac & cheese night!!

Right now we're lovingAnnie's Four Cheese Macaroni and Cheesewith a few extra green touches,of course.This version with broccoli and broccoli pesto mixed in is one of our favorites…

I make my broccoli pesto with blanched broccoli florets,basil,and pepitas.You can use pine nuts or walnuts if that's what you have on hand.I love making pesto with pepitas because they are inexpensive,and they make your pesto a very vibrant green color.This pesto recipe makes extra,so you can either save the rest to mix into your mac and cheese again the next night,or slather it on your eggs & toast the next morning.

We've always been a big fan ofAnnie'sproducts – their Four Cheese Macaroni and Cheese is made with organic wheat penne pasta,and only high-quality non-GMO ingredients.更不用说,这是所以奶油和美味。

  1. So excited to see your book – I bet it's going to be superb!And nothing better than pasta and pesto after a stressful day (or weeks).I always love making broccoli pesto with feta cheese but a twist with pepitas seems just as good 😉

    • 珍妮来自lov徳赢真人娱乐场eandlem徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏ons.comon 说:

      thanks!oh,I'll have to try it with feta next time,that sounds delicious 🙂

  2. Allysonfrom consideringtheradish.wordpress.comon 说:

    Annie's is the only boxed mac and cheese worth eating.I love the idea of adding broccoli in two forms.

    • 珍妮来自lov徳赢真人娱乐场eandlem徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏ons.comon 说:

      totally agree!!

  3. I've never tried adding any type of pesto to mac and cheese,what a great idea!!

  4. I love how you incorporate healthy elements into your mac & cheese!!My favorite add-ins are chili powder and cayenne for a bit of spice 😉

    • 珍妮来自lov徳赢真人娱乐场eandlem徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏ons.comon 说:

      I almost did a chili mac!Next time,mmm…

  5. 卡洛琳on 说:

    I absolutely love your blog,and I am so excited to purchase your 徳赢vwin真人百家乐cookbook!🙂 I do not grow fresh basil at home,and the fresh basil in the supermarket seems very expensive (I need to check out my local farmer's market).This might be a ridiculous question,but is any way to make dried basil work in the broccoli pesto??

    • 珍妮来自lov徳赢真人娱乐场eandlem徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏ons.comon 说:

      Hi Caroline,thanks!!I wouldn't use dried basil,但是我在没有新鲜罗勒的时候用过菠菜,或者菠菜和欧芹或胡荽(基本上是我周围的任何绿叶或柔软的草本植物)混合。调整口味,因为这些东西不像罗勒那么甜(有时柠檬味更浓,徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏sometimes a drop of honey).或者在紧要关头,I would just skip it!!

    Looks so good!Would love to have a lactose free version as well but I guess that is hard if using annie's pasta.Stunning photography as always and congratulations on your book being finished!It must feel so exciting and rewarding!!

      • Raefrom lovefromberlin.neton 说:

  7. Ashley D.on 说:

    I love how pesto gets all caught up in broccoli.It's just a little bit decadent,but at the same time,it's broccoli.Wow,I'm a nerd.但这看起来太棒了!!
