    Thank you so much! Great recipe. I didn't have asiago so used parm reggiano. I think cooking the broccoli and noodles in chicken broth makes the difference! I used a tiny bit of whipping cream at the end too.

    I made this as a side for a party I attended and it was a HUGE hit. I was asked multiple times for the recipe and it was gone before I knew it. Also, I added sliced carrots to add a bit more color and flavor. I'm sure you could add any veggies when you add the broccoli.
