    Recipe Information

    350ml Milk

    200g Fusilli

    180g Cooked Broccoli, roughly chopped

    150g Cheddar, grated

    50g Mozzarella, grated

    2 tbsp Butter

    2 tbsp Plain Flour

    Pinch of salt and pepper

    12-Hole Cupcake Tin, lightly greased



    Add the macaroni to a pan of boiling water and simmer for 8-10 minutes until just cooked.

    In the meantime, melt the butter in another saucepan, slowly combining the flour and gently cook together for a couple of minutes.

    Gradually add the milk, stirring all the time to avoid lumps forming.

    When all of the milk has been incorporated turn off the heat and add 100g of cheddar and all of the mozzarella, then stir until melted.

    Add the broccoli, along with the pasta and seasoning.

    Pre-heat the oven to 200°C Fan/Gas Mark 7.

    Divide the mix between the wells of the tin (they will be quite full) and sprinkle the remaining 50g of cheddar over.

    Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Allow to cool until firm enough to remove from the tin and serve warm.
