How to make Creamy Broccoli Mac and Cheese

The EASIEST and CREAMIEST mac and cheese made in less than 30 min! Comfort food perfection! And it is the perfect way to sneak in those greens!


  • 8 ounces medium pasta shells
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 6 ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese, grated


In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and shallot, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, half and half, and Dijon until slightly thickened, about 3-4 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Stir in pasta, broccoli, and cheese until well combined, about 3-4 minutes.

Serve immediately.
