Broccoli Mac & Cheese

Broccoli Mac & Cheese

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!
This was not the first 4th of July that I have spent in the US, but it was first one as a resident. We decided that we wanted to avoid crowds and still see friends, so we had a meet point (my in-laws), which is in a lovely rural part of Virginia.
The weekend included boardgames (exploding kitty and red dragon inn), as well as a lot of laughter and baby cuddles.

If you are as sleepy as we are then I can bet you are looking for a quick and easy meal. This is it!
It is quick, delicious, as well as a help with any possible hangover.

Ingredients
1 lb gluten free past
1 head of broccoli
2 tbsp butter
1 shallot
2 cloves garlic- minced
1/4 cup gluten free flour
1 cup milk- I used 1 %
1/2 cup chicken broth (can be subbed with veggie)
1&1/2 cup shredded strong cheddar
1 cup smoked gouda
1/2 cup mozzarella
gluten free breadcrumbs to cover the dish
Instructions
Preheat oven to 375F.
Bring water to a boil, salt, and add your pasta (if you can find gluten free pasta shells, use these)
2 minutes prior to the pasta being fully cooked, add your broccoli to the pot.
Strain together.
In a pot, melt the butter and add the shallot- cook for around 5 minutes.
Season with salt and add the garlic.
Add the flour, mix well, and cook for 1 minute.
Add the milk, and broth. Stir until it thickens, and then add your cheeses.
Have your pasta and broccoli in a baking dish. Pour the sauce over the pasta, get it all covered.
Cover the pasta with a thin layer of breadcrumbs.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until gold and bubbly.
