This is a great winter dish and is very fast and easy to make.  When Matt and I lived apart while I was in PA school, he made this himself quite a bit.  I like making mine with whole wheat pasta in interesting shapes.

  1. Heat broiler. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the milk and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add 1 ½ cups of the cheese and stir until melted. Stir in the nutmeg, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  5. Add the pasta and broccoli and toss to combine. Transfer to a broilerproof 8-inch square or a 1 ½-quart baking dish.
  6. Sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup of cheese. Broil until golden, 3 to 4 minutes.
