"I made this a few weeks ago for a potluck at work. It was a huge hit! Love it! Making it again tonight for another party tomorrow. I served it with assorted crackers and a small veggie platter. Thanks for the recipe."
"Super easy to make and I don't feel as guilty eating it (I guess cause it has broccoli in it). I made this for a party and everyone who tried it commented on how good it was. I will definitely make this again and think it would be really good with swiss cheese too."
"This is a simple recipe that tastes great! My vegetarian family members especially love it."
