looking for something different to do with the fresh broccoli I had and this fits the bill. Kids not to happy with the onion, so I may 1/2 that next time I make it. I didn't have any Parmesan thawed out, so I used the swiss I had in the fridge. Overall a tasty recipe! Thanks!

The timing on posting this recipe is just perfect. Guess who's DH came home from Costco today with a 300# bag of broccoli!?

I made this paired with the Italian Chicken Noodle Skillet (also on this site). It has a strong flavor, but we really enjoyed it. I doubled the amount of broccoli but kept the rest of the recipe at the amounts listed. Will make again as my husband loved it!
