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

"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!

"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."
