Meatless Monday Recipe: Baked Broccoli Macaroni & Cheese

Since it's January and freezing outside, I was in need of some comfort food this weekend.  When it comes to comfort food, you can't go wrong with baked macaroni and cheese, right?  I know it's not the healthiest food in the world. But jazzing it up with broccoli can make it more "adult"and be a place where you can sneak some veggies past a picky eater.

Being vegan, I'm also including the meat- and dairy free-recipe below.

#MeatlessMonday Baked Broccoli Macaroni & Cheese

1 lb noodles of your choice cooked per directions on box
1/2 cup flour
3 cups milk
