Ingredients

  • 454 grams cut macaroni
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 65 grams goat cheese
  • 6 slices cheddar
  • 3 slices monterey jack
  • 3 slices red hot chili pepper monterey jack
  • 3 broccoli crowns separated
  • 1.5 cups peas fresh, frozen, or canned works
  • 2.5 cups water
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp lemon zest optional

Instructions

  • Put everything into your pot and cook until the pasta is al dente.
  • If your pasta is done cooking and it is still too liquidly for your liking, let the sauce reduce down.

Notes

I have an insane love of garlic so you may or may not want to adjust to taste. In addition, the cheese combo I used is based on my and my boyfriend's preference. It may or may not be the combination you'd like as there's chili flakes in one of the cheeses I've used. Also, don't worry too much about adding liquids, you may need more water depending on the pot you use but it will reduce down the longer you cook it.
