Penne with Broccoli and Apples

This is one of those throw it together recipes, using what is found, in the cupboard and refrigerator. As you may have noticed, I make many of these, and usually am pleasantly surprised by the good results.

Penne with Broccoli and Apples


16 ounce box of gluten-free penne pasta
1 box frozen broccoli, chopped
1 apples, peeled and diced
1 cup shredded or diced Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup sliced almonds


Cook penne according to package directions.

Three minutes before draining, add broccoli to the pot and finish cooking.  You can also cook the broccoli separately or microwave it.

Drain.  Replace in saucepan.

Add the cheese and mix through the penne and broccoli.

Add the apples and almonds and heat for another minute or two.

I didn't add milk but I think a half cup of coconut milk would be a great addition. Add milk after the cheese and mix in. 

Eat and enjoy.
