 Broccoli Primavera with Cheese Sauce
This dish tastes like you fussed over it for hours, but it's actually easy. It's perfect for family dinners and also nice enough to serve company. Our dairy operation can keep me busy, so any dish that can be prepared in a hurry and also tastes great is a blessing to this farm wife!
