Made a few insignificant changes when preparing this dish ~ Used fresh broccoli & garlic, & then topped it all off with some crushed Milton's Original Multi-Grain Crackers! We're big fans of broccoli & thoroughly enjoyed this casserole! Will certainly be making this again, 'cause it's a nice new way to enjoy this veggie! Thanks for sharing it!

This was very good! I am not a big fan of vegetable casseroles, but an annual potluck I attend always calls for a broccoli casserole. I am very excited to find this recipe, which provides a much fresher taste, and I really appreciate how it doesn't require cream of soups, sour cream, and mayonnaise. I used fresh broccoli, which I quickly blanched (I like the broccoli to remain crisp at the end of the baking time), omitted the salt, used skim milk and low fat cream cheese, and low sodium Ritz crackers for the topping. I also crushed the crackers directly on, without adding additional butter. I was very impressed with how it turned out. Thanks for sharing!

First, Let me say I was looking for a Rice and Chicken and Broccoli/Cauliflower and Cheese Recipe. With a couple of changes, this was exactly what I wanted ! The Sauce base for this recipe is very very tasty and perfect in every way. I used a package of Frozen Broccoli and Cauliflower, which I tossed in the microwave for a few minutes, then drained. I also left off the topping because I added some leftover Wild Rice to the mix. Smelled so good while cooking and the texture of the finished dish was just what I was wanting. Also, I was going to snap a photo of this when it came out of the oven, but we sat down at the table and the next thing I knew it was All Gone ! Maybe next time. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe !

This was quite good. We all enjoyed it, and there were no left-overs. I really liked the buttered Ritz crumbs on top. It added such a nice touch to the casserole. I strayed from the directions only in one minor way. I didn't add the cheddar cheese on top until the last few minutes of baking, because I like cheese to be only slightly melted and I thought 40 minutes in the oven would have made the cheese melt away, at least more than we like. All in all, it's a great casserole that I'll make again. Thanks, breezermom.

Good! Was in the mood for a creamy but easy casserole to serve alongside steaks and potatoes. Will make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was DELISH! I doubled the recipe and added chopped leftover thanksgiving turkey to morph this into a main dish. I also baked it in a 13x9 casserole dish. Will definitely make this again! Hubby and 4 kids (1,6,12,14) loved it!!

I thought this was surprisingly dissapointing. Very bland, and the texture was very mushy. Made accourding to directions, the only substitution I made was fresh broc. instead of frozen.

5 stars for sure as my husband, who refuses to eat green vegetables, actually tried this and took seconds! I didn't have any ritz crackers, but we had some unsalted tops soda crackers that I used.
