Broccoli and mushrooms go great together so I knew I'd enjoy this. I served to my father in law (who likes broccoli) but didn't bother with the rest of the family, since the wheat noodles I used put it over the "edge" in healthiness factor. I also enjoyed a sprinkling of walnuts on mine. Thanks Pattikay, for posting. Roxygirl

Really liked the combination of ingredients in this recipe. There are a lot of my favorite things. I maybe would increase the cheese part next time as ours was a little dry. I halved the recipe as there are just two of us and now wonder if that would have affected the moistness of the recipe. I used a 9 x9 baking dish. I will be making this again.

I really liked this. It tastes like grown-up macaroni and cheese with yummy fresh vegetables thrown in. I sauteed the veggies in the morning and put it all together, then baked it when I got home from work. DH didn't like it, but that just leaves more for me! Thanks for a keeper PattiKay!
