Very tasty! I also liked that this version had ingredients I could pronounce. Used a shortcut which worked quite nicely: In the covered casserole dish, added the chopped broccoli and microwaved for 3 mintues on high, no water necessary. Perfectly crisp tender and green, and, since I just added the other ingredients to the cooked broccoli before baking, no extra dish to wash :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Takes longer to make than the classic Cheez Whiz/Cr of Mushroom version, but the taste and texture is worth the effort! I used fat free milk and still had great results. Great use for leftover rice....especially from chinese takeout. Thanx for posting!
