MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2014

"I thought this was a great side dish. The sauce was thick and creamy and I did cut back on the onion a bit but over all easy and great."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2014

"Did not care for this at all. The onion overwhelmed the broccoli and, contrary to ConnieK, we found the sauce too runny."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 29, 2013

"This was good. The sauce came out thicker than I expected, could use more liquid in it. May add a little chicken broth the next time I make it."
