      This pasta dish turned out so yummy. It was very creamy, cheesy and the broccoli added a nice touch. I used whole spelt pasta and a blend of different cheeses in place of the mozzarella. For my roux I didnt need as much butter as stated, but I guess that varies from day to day. I loved the layering technique in this as it made the pasta very creamy. However I found that the dish needed a bit more flavour, some black pepper and onion maybe or some cayenne pepper and Italian herbs. Other than that though a true keeper! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it with us, Crafty!

      I enjoyed this very much as a full meal for a luncheon with my sister n law. We both liked the freshness of the brocolli and the cheese together. I love garlic so this is right up my alley. I will make this again as a quick dinner or luncheon for friends and family. Perfect for the unexpected hurry up meal. This would also be a great side dish for dinner. I did reduce this for 2 people but wish I would have made more for leftovers. I bet it is even better the 2nd time around. Made for AUS/NZ Swap49

      This is so delicious! This is so flavorful thanks to the fresh garlic and cheese. I did add some freshly shredded parmesan cheese as well as the mozzarella. I did use frozen broccoli and cooked that in the microwave before adding to pasta. I love broccoli and pasta together so this is a definite winner! I will make again. Made for Photo Tag.
