Makeover Creamy Broccoli Casserole Recipe

Makeover Creamy Broccoli Casserole Recipe

I have to watch my fat intake, so I'm always looking for ways to make my cooking as healthy as possible. I adapted a family recipe to fit my diet. The better-for-you broccoli bake takes advantage of several fat-free or reduced-fat products. It calls for fat-free mayonnaise, reduced-fat cheese, reduced-fat crackers and reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed soup.—Carolyn Creasman, Gastonia, North Carolina
