From the Test Kitchen

It doesn’t get much more comforting than tonight’s cheesy, creamy pasta and broccoli casserole. We’re tossing springy fusilli bucati and tender vegetables with nutty asiago cheese, then topping the casserole with creamy fontina cheese just before baking it to meld the rich flavors. A garnish of crispy onions finishes the dish with contrasting texture.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; roughly chop the broccoli. Peel and medium dice the onion and carrots. Medium dice the celery. Keeping them separate, grate the asiago cheese and fontina cheese on the large side of a box grater.

In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped broccoli, diced onion, carrots, and celery, and spice blend; season with salt and pepper.
