Using whole-wheat pasta and breadcrumbs boosts the fiber content of this crowd-pleaser and gives it an appealing nuttiness. Fat-free milk, part-skim ricotta, and a touch of sharp Parmesan lighten the casserole without sacrificing the taste or texture.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
2 slices whole-wheat bread (1 ounce)
1 head broccoli (1 pound), cut into florets, stems peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
8 ounces whole-wheat fusilli pasta
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion (5 ounces), finely chopped (about 1 cup)
3 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground mustard
4 cups skim milk
1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese, pureed
2 ounces grated Parmesan cheese (1 cup)
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Process bread in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Toast for 8 minutes.


Cook broccoli in a large pot of boiling water until slightly tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl using a slotted spoon, reserving water in pot. Add pasta to water, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain.


Add oil and onion to clean pot over medium heat. Saute, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 7 minutes. Add flour and ground mustard. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk in a slow, steady stream. Bring to a boil. Cook, whisking, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add cheeses and 1 teaspoon salt. Season with pepper.


Stir in broccoli and pasta. Transfer to six 1 1/2-cup ramekins or an 8 1/2-by-11-inch baking dish; top with breadcrumbs. Bake until bubbling and tops are browned, 25 to 30 minutes.
