Baked Broccoli Mac & Cheese

Standard

Cook pasta and broccoli together until al dente. Preheat oven to 375°. In a skillet, melt cook butter and onion on low heat for about 2 min. Add flour, and cook about a minute more (until flour is golden and well-combined). Whisk in milk and broth until it comes to a boil, and then raise the heat to med. high. Add salt and pepper, and cook about 5 min. (or until the sauce is smooth and thick). Remove from heat, and add cheese until it is melted. Add the macaroni and broccoli, and pour into a greased baking dish. Top w/ the parm. and bread crumbs, and spray extra cooking spray on top. Bake 15-20 min., and then broil for a few minutes at the end to make the bread crumbs golden.
