1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup blue cheese dressing
1 package Ramen noodles, broken up
6 cups broccoli, stems peeled, heads chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
flavor pack from Ramen
12 oz. sliced mushrooms, sautéed in butter
Place a large pot of water on to boil, prepare an ice water bath. Peel stems of broccoli and cut into 1½ – inch lengths, halve or quarter stems and coarsely chop heads. When water is at a full rolling boil, salt generously and blanch broccoli for about 1 full minute, remove to an ice water bath to halt cooking. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sauté mushrooms in a pat of butter. Turn off heat and add broccoli. Stir in mayo, yogurt, blue cheese dressing, eggs, half of the cheddar cheese, salt, pepper and broken noodles and the flavor pack. Stir to coat. Pack into a greased 8 x 8-inch baking dish, season with a bit more pepper and cover with remaining cheese. Cook 45 minutes covered, then remove cover and bake 15 more minutes to brown. Cool at least 15 minutes before serving. Serves 6 to 8
