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.

This is an awesome recipe! I can't believe there is only one review written on it. I've been making it for a couple of years and it's a huge hit every time. The only thing I've changed is that I use jarred Alfredo sauce to cut down on the prep time.

This was delicious! Total comfort food. Took a while to make(maybe because I used fresh broccoli?) but was absolutely worth it. Thanks for a great recipe.
