"Made this tonight for dinner. I used fresh broccoli and made my own Alfredo sauce. This was quick and easy and my husband loved it. Definitely a quick dish to make when you are pressed for time."

"This is a super quick weeknight meal. I like the frozen broccoli because I always have it on hand, so for me, this is a great pantry meal."

"Made this for dinner for the first time tonight. I added a little more grated cheese and salt because I found it to be a little bland, reason for the four stars. However; after doing so, the meal was absolutely delicious. I also used fresh broccoli"

"My whole family enjoyed this and it was very easy to make. I did use fresh broccoli instead of frozen. I rated 4 instead of 5 stars because it was a tiny bit bland. I think next time I'll add a few other spices. Will most definitely add it to our regular list."

"This is very good but where do you find reduced fat alfredo? Why use frozen broccoli when you can use fresh? Very good though"
