Great way to make broccoli. The ranch flavor just goes so well with this vegetable. I realize that not all of the ranch sauce gets used, but I still think the amounts as written need adjusting. I doubled the broccoli (I used 1 1/2 lbs of fresh steamed to be exact). One cup of milk seemed like way to much, so I only used 1/2 cup and I'm glad I did. I used all of the sauce (remember I doubled the broccoli) and it was still a bit liquidy. I recommend at least doubling the broccoli and halving the milk. Something like chopped onions or waterchestnuts might be nice, too. I liked the buttered breadcrumb topping. Yum! Will make again with my adjustments. Thanx!
