DIRECTIONS

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain.

Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds more. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle flour over mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, and stir constantly until flour is cooked through and golden, 2 minutes.

Whisk in chicken broth, then heavy cream and hot sauce and bring to a simmer. Add broccoli and let simmer until bright green, 2 minutes. Add cooked noodles and season again with salt and pepper. Add cheese and stir to combine. Transfer to prepared 8 X 8 inch baking dish. Pour over beaten eggs and gently toss if necessary.

In a small bowl, mix panko and olive oil and season with salt. Sprinkle over top.

Bake until bubbly and golden, 40-45 minutes.

Let cool 20 minutes, then slice and serve.
