Very good! A little more effort than I usually put into vegetables, but very tasty.

Wanted to try this for Thanksgiving so trial batch today. Very good going to serve instead of the classic green bean casserole. Same creamy texture but a step up with the fresh broccoli and homemade sauce. Looks pretty too!

I thought this was very good. Great way to add some flavor to broccoli if you are willing to put in the effort.

This was good, but a little too rich for my liking.

This recipe came out great! The creamy sauce compliments the broccoli very well. I made it the night before (without breadcrumbs) and refrigerated it until cooking it the next day. I sprinkled on the breadcrumbs right before cooking, and it came out wonderful.
