No Neapolitan meal is ever complete without a dish of macaroni. Macaroni was invented in this region and the word today has almost become generic for dried pasta. Although known elsewhere in Italy as "maccheroni", macaroni is the spelling used in Naples and throughout Europe. Macaroni tossed in a cream and cheese sauce with fresh broccoli is a delightful recipe. Toss and serve this pasta immediately, as it does not taste very well when it is re-heated.

Macaroni in this cheesy white sauce is super delicious. The broccoli gives a perfect mouth feel to this creamy pasta. I also add baby corn something which also enhances the flavour. This recipe is one of those which is loved by kids as well as adults.

I love broccoli and basil.. These combination along with the garlic, fresh cream and cheese makes it an outstanding delight.. These cheesy and creamy pasta along with soft macaroni and crunchy broccoli gives an amazing crunchy mouthfeel..
