Here is another great Meatless Monday recipe to add to your list. It is ooey and gooey and cheesy and yummy!

This recipe is basically like a baked macaroni and white cheese dish with some broccoli thrown in. Herb called it “Adult Mac ‘n’ Cheese”. Whatever you want to call it, it is delicious! It is also a great way to get any picky eaters in your family to eat broccoli. It is so much like a comfort food that you won’t even know you’re eating vegetables!
