This recipe is very good. The only change we made was to use about 1 1/2 cups of frozen broccoli instead of the fresh. Another suggestion I would make is that each person salt and pepper to their own taste.

We thought this was okay. It was a little dry and a little bland. But I guess this goes with the territory for low fat :) We also used frozen broccoli and I also added some garlic because I always do! We didn't hate this, we didn't love this, it was just okay! Thanks!
