    Hiya. Found this recipe that someone posted on the recipe forum. U could just amend it slightly to include what u have in. Never tried quark tho so not sure what it's like.

    Brocolli & Macaroni Cheese
    From the quick & easy dinners recipe book

    Super simple to make
    Serves 4
    Ready in about 30 mins
    Syns per serving: 4.5 syns on Green & Extra Easy if not using the cheese as HEA choice.

    Ingredients:
    12 oz/340g dried macaroni
    11 oz/312g brocolli florets
    4 oz/113g smoked cheese, grated
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 tsp dried red chilli flakes
    9 oz/255g quark
    2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
    salt & pepper

    Method:
    Preheat your oven to 200 degrees/gas mark 6. Boil the macaroni in a pan for 10-12 minutes adding the brocolli florets for the last 4 minutes. Drain well & set aside.
    Mix together the smoked cheese, crushed garlic, chilli flakes, quark & egg yolks in a large bowl & season well. Add the pasta & brocolli & toss to coat evenly.
    Put the pasta mixture into an ovenproof dish & bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven & serve. Top with a twist of black pepper.
