Healthy Broccoli Cheese Bake
A more nutritious version of the classic casserole, made with mushrooms, peppers, and whole-wheat bread crumbs.

Set oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees C).

Grease a 2-quart baking dish sparingly.

In a sizable skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.

Make the onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms.

Stirring frequently for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the mixture starts to brown, with 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper.

After adding flour to the mushroom mixture, stir for 1 minute.

Bring milk and the final 1/4 teaspoon of salt to a boil while stirring until smooth.

Boil for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until just starting to thicken.

Add 2 tablespoons of Romano and the cheddar.

Then, stir in the broccoli before adding the mixture to the baking dish.

Sprinkle bread crumbs and the final 2 tablespoons of Romano cheese on top.

Add a buttery touch.
