Broccoli Mac and Cheese Gratin

Now this one is a good one to freeze.


Sorry that the picture is a little fuzzy, but the camera battery was dying as I took these.

I can't remember if it was right before or after I had Andy that was looking for something different. Some sort of casserole that did not call for tons of processed indregients. Something that I as an adult would enjoy, but something that James could eat as well. I came across this recipe for Broccoli Mac and Cheese Gratin from the Nerd family blog and this was just what I was looking for. I think the original poster uses it more for a side dish, but I like to add some organic chicken sausage to make it a full meal. Don't be shy with the salt or the red pepper, it needs it! Instead of making it in a 9x13 pan (I never make anything in a 9x13 pan), I always break it up into 2 smaller pans. Half of the one I made here is going to a new mom from my Monday playgroup. It works well with my best fruit salad.
