    This was really good... used mozzarella instead. Will make again.

    My family all enjoyed this- the pecans were a wonderful addition of texture. I had no Swiss on hand, so I used mozzarella cheese instead. Worked nicely!

    This has become a favorite "go-to" recipe whenever I'm looking for a quick and delicious side dish. It's in my keeper file.

    This was very easy to make and tasted good. I think it might try it with fresh broccoli next time and also I want to reduce or substitute something else for at least part of the butter. The butter tasted good, but I think it would have been almost as good with less butter.

    I made this tonight but used fresh broccoli which I blanched and then proceeded with the recipe as written but substituted healthy spread margarine for part of the butter and reduced the amount. Every last bit was eaten. We will definitely have this again.
