Cooking with two: broccoli pasta bake

Really easy pasta bake recipe to make - you can see the original recipe here on A Mummy Too's blog - I just reduced it massively as didn't want us to be eating the same thing for 7 days in a row!!

60g cream cheese
75ml milk
40ml double cream
65g grated cheddar
90g cooked pasta shapes (don't overlook as they're going to go in the oven again!)
50g (ish) broccoli florets
Breadcrumbs as garnish

Tip - easy way to make breadcrumbs: toast a slice of bread, then (whilst over a chopping board) scrape up and down the surface with a regular knife. Turn over and repeat the other side. Then pop it back in the toaster and repeat the process. Hey presto loads of fine breadcrumbs on your chopping board :)

1. Mix the cream cheese, milk and double cream in a bowl (D smooshed the cream cheese with a wooden spoon first to make it easier to mix with the liquids)
2. Add the grated cheese and pasta and mix well
3. Roughly cut the "flowery" bits of the uncooked broccoli and mix with everything else
4. Pour into a greased ovenproof dish and sprinkle with the breadcrumbs (plus any leftover grated cheese - we didn't have any as Iz diligently kept adding all the cheese she found to the mixing bowl!)
5. Cook at 180 degrees for 15 minutes... And enjoy :)
