We just loved this, Caroline! My husband loves cheesy broccoli and this was perfect. Easy and delicious! You can't ask for much more from a broccoli recipe : ) Thanks so much!

Wow! I really liked this dish! I don't usually like to take a good vegetable and make a casserole out of it, but I used 2 - 10 oz. packages of frozen chopped broccoli and I had some evaporated milk that needed to be used instead of the milk. I did add the mushrooms but not the pimiento and I eliminated the topping. Very good side dish. Will definitely make again.

Really great side dish. I normally hate the taste of canned mushrooms, but this dish didnt have the canned taste. I scaled this down to serve two people and it came out great.... so great that I could only get a picture of it before it was baked, my family ate it all!! Made for ZWT 3!
