Broccoli & Cheese Pinwheels

Broccoli & Cheese Pinwheels

Fridge raid dinner tonight and this is what I came up with. I had some broccoli that was looking rather sad so I wanted to base dinner around it!

Broccoli and cheese is such a winning combination!  A few herbs and spices really elevate this simple dish! 

These delicious pinwheels come together so quickly and a great way to amp up veggie intake!
