I really wanted to like this recipe, but unfortunately the flavors did not meld well together at all. Which is sad because individually they are stellar. The cream sauce was just outstanding and would be great over tacos but over powered the cheese and clashed with the broccoli. Similarly the potatoes without the sauce were wonderful. I will make this again, but in the separate components for separate meals. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2010!
