I make this easy meat and veggie bake often because it provides plenty of delicious leftovers for later. My fiance and I love broccoli, so this hearty recipe pleases us both. it would go over big as a featured entree for a brunch buffet.
My family wouldn't eat spinach until I found this recipe. Then it became a dish they frequently requested. It's a meal in itself, adds color to any menu and is well received at a potluck gathering.
