We know how it goes: sometimes all you need is a big ol’ bowl of mac and cheese to fill you up—both your stomach and your heart. This one’s filled with cheesy and creamy goodness: cream sauce, cream cheese, cheddar, and mozzarella. Our chefs added a secret ingredient (aka Dijon mustard) for a tangy, rich flavor. Plus, this mac has a healthy dose of veg by way of broccoli rice mixed right into the same pot. Now when you tell your doctor you’ve been eating well-rounded meals, you’re not lying…

Cream Sauce Base(ContainsMilk)
• Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry produce (except broccoli rice). • Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens.
• Once water is boiling, add cavatappi to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water, then drain. • Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in same pot over medium heat. Add panko and 1 TBSP scallion greens; toast, stirring, until panko is golden, 2-3 minutes. • Turn off heat; transfer to a small bowl. Wipe out pot.
• Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in same pot over medium-high heat. Add broccoli rice, scallion whites, half the garlic powder (all for 4), and a big pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until broccoli is tender, 2-3 minutes. • Add cream sauce base, stock concentrates, and ½ cup reserved pasta cooking water (¾ cup for 4); bring to a simmer. • Stir in mustard, cream cheese, cheddar, and mozzarella. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cheeses melt and sauce is thick and creamy, 1-2 minutes. • Add drained cavatappi; stir until pasta is thoroughly coated in sauce. TIP: If needed, stir in more reserved cooking water a splash at a time until pasta is coated in a creamy sauce. • Remove from heat.
• Divide mac and cheese between bowls. Garnish with toasted panko and remaining scallion greens. Serve.
