Reviews for Broccoli Chicken Lasagna
"Make more sauce. There wasn't enough to cover. I made this also without the ham."
"I don't care for mushrooms so substituted water chestnuts. Loved the taste. I think I would also try this with a different vegetable blend and maybe different cheeses for variety, though I love broccoli and Monterey Jack or CoJack cheese."
"This was an excellent recipe. I also used steamed fresh broccoli, fat free milk & fat free cheese to lighten it up. I will definitely be making this again!!"
"I would make this again! My husband raved over this! I likes it a lot also! the only thing I owuld do diffrent is maybe add a can of cream of celery or mushroom and maybe a half a can of milk as I thought the noodles sucked up a lot of the liquid and made it a bit dry. Other than that great flavor. I also used fresh broccoli and added a few extra mushrooms because I had that leftover from the weekend and didnt want to waste fresh mushrooms."
"This recipe takes a little extra prep work, but is worth it! It has a great flavor and my family loves it!"
