Add ghee (or butter to your pan) and saute your mushrooms. Remove them and set aside. Then, add the water you will need to cook the pasta into your pot. Steam the broccoli, remove it and make the Chickapea Mac & Cheese according to directs. Then add back in the broccoli, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes.
