"It was fine, but I thought it needed more flavor."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 9, 2013

"Not sure why this recipe is called spears when it's all florets...but the name error didn't stop me from making it! Very delicious indeed! I used a 12 oz bag of fresh florets (which has 6 cups in it), regular salt (because I didn't have onion salt home), and Italian seasoning (since I didn't have plain thyme home). Oh soooo good!~ Theresa"

"This was really yummy! I used a combination of fresh broccoli and fresh cauliflower instead of frozen broccoli. My husband, who doesn't even like cauliflower went back for more! I will definately make this again and again and again."
