Tonight’s recipe is for Broccoli Bacon Mac and Cheese – a real bowl of comfort food.  It might be a bit cheeky of me calling it Mac and Cheese as I’ve made it with fusilli pasta.  None of the supermarkets near me stock gluten free macaroni – its odd as I thought that would be a popular choice.

I’ve made a simple dairy free cheese sauce and stirred through some pasta, smoked bacon and broccoli.  An easy option to make for a quick, but tasty, week night meal.
