Directions

As the oven preheats to 400 degrees, bring a pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Slightly lower the heat, add the pasta and broccoli florets and allow them to cook for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain the pasta and broccoli, and then set aside in a large pan. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat then add the flour and cook for two minutes. Slowly pour in the almond milk, making sure to whisk constantly until the mixture is lump free. Next, slowly add the cheese and continue to stir until melted. Add the paprika, cayenne, salt, and pepper to the cheese mixture. Pour the cheese over the macaroni and broccoli. Add the cooked chicken and stir until the pasta is evenly coated. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve while hot and enjoy!
