"Made this for dinner last night and we all loved it, even our son who's not that fond of ground meat. I made one slight change. When I made my shopping list, I thought the recipe called for frozen broccoli cuts. I don't like the texture of those, so I bought a pound of fresh broccoli crowns instead, planning to cut them up and steam them before adding. When I realized my mistake, I just rough chopped the fresh broccoli, steamed it in the microwave for a few minutes and added it as directed. It turned out delicious. Definitely a keeper!"

"We are empty nesters, so I cut the recipe in half. Couldn't find the fried onions at the supermarket, so I eliminated them. The recipe turn out great without them. We had leftovers enough for a second meal, so I served this again as a lunch meal. Tasted great reheated also. Love a recipe that is low in cal but tastes like it is full of calories."

"This casserole is to die for! I made it last night and everyone in my family loved it. Very simple to make. I followed the recipe exactly but may have used closer to a cup of cheese in the skillet and also at the end. I found the soup (Campbells) at Vons too, so stores do carry it. Served this with a salad and it was the perfect meal."

"This was great and very easy. I followed the recipe. The tomatoes, broccoli, and French onions were a perfect trio. I cooked real white potatoes and beef night before to save time during our usual evening time crunch."

"Yummy!! I didn't have cream of broccoli, so I used cream of mushroom. I also added a little extra cheese and some more salt. It was delicious!! My whole family loved it!"
