Baked Vegan Broccoli Mac and Cheese
What you'll need
Creamy Versatile Instant Pot Cheese Sauce
whole wheat elbows, shells, bowtie, or other small pasta
cut into bite-sized florets
whole wheat panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper
How you'll do it
Preheat oven to 375°.
Bring a pot of water to boil and cook pasta al dente. Drain and rinse in cold water to stop cooking.
Steam broccoli using the method you prefer. I use an electric steamer (because I’m a kitchen appliance addict).
If cheese sauce is cold, warm it up in a small saucepan. It spreads and mixes much easier warmed up.
In a 9×13 casserole dish, add pasta, broccoli, and carrots. Cover with cheese sauce and mix with a spatula until well blended and evenly distributed.
Sprinkle breadcrumbs on the top along with Italian seasoning if using.
Bake at 375° for 30 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.
Let cool for 10 minutes. Serve and season to taste with salt and pepper.
