Prep Time

10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients

For the breadcrumbs:
30g panko breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon finely chopped chives
1 tablespoon SMUG butter, melted

For the pasta and sauce:
200g short pasta (macaroni)
1 bay leaf
150g cauliflower and broccoli florets
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons SMUG butter
1 minced garlic clove
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
2 tablespoons plain flour
350ml SMUG milk
150g grated SMUG cheese
20g grated Parmesan cheese a pinch of salt

Instructions

01

Combine the panko breadcrumbs, smoked paprika, chives, melted SMUG butter, a pinch of salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

02

Boil water in a large pan for the pasta. Once boiling, add salt, a bay leaf, and the pasta. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Add the vegetables during the last minute of cooking. Once the pasta is al dente, drain and set aside.

03

While the pasta is cooking, prepare the sauce. Melt 2 tablespoons of SMUG butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion powder, and mustard. Sauté for 1 minute. Stir in the flour and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

04

Gradually add the SMUG milk, whisking continuously for 5 minutes until you achieve a thick, smooth sauce. Remove from heat and stir in the SMUG cheese and Parmesan cheese. Taste and season with salt and black pepper according to your preference.

05

Mix the pasta and vegetables into the cheese sauce thoroughly. Transfer the mixture to an ovenproof dish and sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the top.

06

Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for approximately 20 minutes or until a golden crust forms. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

Instead of cauliflower or broccoli, you can include other vegetables such as peas, kale, or sliced mushrooms as alternatives.
