this was soo goood! There are a few things that I would change. Use 1 10oz bag of broccoli, had way to much left. I would add 1 cup more chicken. I would also stuff my shells before making the sauce as it got cold and clumpy. I would also cover with foil ,not to dry out shells and cook it a little bit longer, until it bubbles. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. My mom does not like broccoli but said it was excellent.
