Tonight I threw together a relatively quick and easy dinner. Actually I was surprised at how quickly it came together! You could call this Hamburger Helper as well

Beef & Broccoli
1 tbsp olive oil
1 head of broccoli – chopped
1 small onion -chopped
1/4 cup frozen peas
1 lb ground beef
Seasoning: 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp garlic

2 cups brown rice pasta

Cheese Sauce
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour (brown rice for a child under 1 yr)
1 cup of milk
1 cup grated cheese

On your stove set up one pot for pasta, a small saucepan for the cheese sauce and a frying pan for the beef.

Pasta – get the pasta going: boil the water and add the noodles

Beef & Broccoli
Sauté the onions in the oil, until soft (3 min)
Add the beef and cook for 5 mins over medium heat until mostly brown
Add the broccoli, peas and seasoning
Place the lid on the pan and lower the heat
Occasionally stir the beef & broccoli

Cheese Sauce
Combine the butter and flour to make a paste
Put on stove over medium heat and add approx. 1/4 c of milk
Stirring frequently, when it starts to thicken add a bit more milk
Continue to slowly adding milk, giving time to thicken
When all of the milk has been added, add the cheese and stir until you get a lovely cheese sauce, then immediately remove from heat

Putting It All Together
When the pasta is done, drain the noodles and portion the noodles into bowls
Add the beef & broccoli to the noodles
Spoon cheese sauce over top

Enjoy! This should be pretty kid friendly!

p.s. I did this on my iPhone – what do you think? Is it easy to read?
