Quick and Easy Cheese and Brocolli Pasta - wwpp=5
Okay, sometimes in this whirl wind of vegetables and counting points. You just need an easy, no brainer kinda recipe.
Here's one for you. It seems to make a nice serving and was very filling. I also made some sweet carrots and a side salad.
Easy Cheese and Broccoli Pasta
1 box of Smart Taste Rotini Pasta
2 boxes of Krogers Cheese and Broccoli ( they seemed to give the lower points)
Here's a picture in case you need to look for them.
1 cup of fat free shredded cheddar cheese
Pop the broccoli and cheese sauce in the microwave for about 6 minutes. This softens the broccoli and melts the cheese enough to mix in.
Fix the pasta as per the box. When finished drain, but leave back about 1/2 of the pasta liquid and put the pasta back into the pot.
Mix in the two boxes of broccoli into the pasta.
Pour on the cup of cheese on top.
Put lid back on top and leave on top of stove for at least 30 minutes. What this does it gives the pasta the chance to soak up all the flavors and cheese.
When you go to serve this, It make 5 even portions. When I created the numbers I made it for 5 servings.
This is a really quick recipe and was a real big hit.
I hope everyone is enjoying my recipes, as I create them for our daily life.
I have as of today lost 16 lbs and still working on it everyday.
