"This is a good low calorie recipe. Made it exactly as written. Will make again."
"Double the sauce. Do not use frozen broccoli or precook it.Otherwise tasty and will make again. My kids really liked it"
"Very simple and very good. My 5 year old eventually ate it (with some coaxing) but my 2 1/2 year old wouldn't really eat it."
"Used fresh broccoli instead of frozen."
"I made this dish for my boys (age 4 and 6), and they loved it! I used high fiber egg noodles and 75% low-fat cheddar, and you would never have known. Excellent! Really good leftover too!"
