Mac & Cheese with Style December 20, 2009

Crispy Onion Ziti with Parmesan Cheese and Steamed BroccoliJamie says:  I was in the mood for some mac & cheese, so I got out the large pot and boiled some whole grain ziti.  In the top of the pot, there’s a steaming basket, so I chopped up some fresh broccoli, threw it in, and put the lid on top of the pot.  I used the last of the onions from the 5 lb bag Mom and Dad brought us from their trip to Georgia.  I sliced the onion and sautéed the slices in a frying pan with extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper until it caramelized.  I combined all the ingredients and poured in some Publix shaved parmesan cheese.  Kathryn came home just as I finished.  Perfect timing.  We both really enjoyed dinner.  And my mac & cheese craving was mostly satisfied. 

Nutrition note: Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable.  Cruciferous vegetables can help protect the body from cancer.
