Ingredients

  • 1 pound gluten-free pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup gluten-free flour of choice
  • cups unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast or Parmesan cheese plus more for garnish
  • cups shredded cheddar cheese divided (or vegan option)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour, then slowly start to pour in milk, whisking constantly until smooth and no lumps remain. Whisk in nutritional yeast and 1 cup cheese, until cheese has melted. Once the sauce is smooth, remove from heat and whisk in salt, mustard, garlic powder, and pepper.
  • When the pasta has 5 minutes cooking time left, add broccoli florets to the pot and allow to cook until just tender. Drain the pasta and broccoli, and pour into an oven-safe baking dish. Pour cheese sauce on top and fold everything together.
  • Sprinkle remaining ½ cup cheese and the breadcrumbs onto the noodles. Bake pasta on the center rack for 25 minutes, until bubbling. Remove, garnish with additional nutritional yeast, and serve.
