This is a great recipe! I used fresh broccoli and half a cup of chopped mushrooms. I also substituted the cream of Mushroom soup for half chicken and half mushroom soup (low-cal) I didn't need butter and left off the cheese, and it tasted amazing. BF has requested it again!

I used frozen pees instead of broccoli. It was good but not very flavorful. Also, the flour and water just turned lumpy in the sauce so I had to fish out the clumps.

My family really enjoyed this. Substituted fresh broccoli for frozen. DH especially loved the melba toast topping. He requested that I make it again.
