A change in taste with broccoli, very nice, from Cooking light. I sprinkled a few sliced almonds on top, added to the nutty flavour.

I made this at work, it was quick and tasty but I thought it a bit dry in the mouth. I will certainly make it again, but I'm going to mix a couple of tablespoons of melted butter through the crumb mix. UPDATE: I made this again, and added the butter to the mix as I planned-I think it worked really well this time.

We had this for supper tonight and enjoyed it very much. I added the butter as recommended by Jan and it was very moist and flavorful! A nice change for the taste of broccoli! I liked the almonds! Thanks for sharing, Dorothy!

This was quite a different change from the steamed broccoli I typically serve, and I liked it very much. I microwaved the broccoli at first rather than steamed it, which worked just fine. I also had to leave out the almonds due to a nut-phobic teenage son (I just added some extra parmesan to make up for it). Very easy to prepare, very tasty, and I will make it again!
