This versatile side dish is a variation of a recipe I've had for years. Instead of broccoli, you can use green beans, carrots or your family's favorite vegetable. You can even add cubed cooked chicken and turn it into a main dish.—Robin Stevens, Cadiz, Kentucky

"Thank you, Robin, for sharing your delicious recipe. Instead of parmesan, I used a mixture of grated cheddar, mozzarella, and goat cheese."

"One good thing if a recipe is as simple as this, you can jazz it up with whatever you and/or your family likes.

Good basic recipe."

"SO GOOD. I took a lot of different peoples suggestions and made it my own.. Used almond milk, 2/3 cups of parmesan, added salt and pepper, and a dash of oregano and basil leaves. Also put plainly grilled diced chicken to the mix :O Nom. Nom. Nom!"

"Simple meal! Very plain though. I added salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese plus extra for more taste instead of 1/4 cup, 1 tbs. of crushed garlic, and a tsp. of ground nutmeg. Next time I'll add chicken to complete the meal."
