This is a fast easy weeknight recipe when you need dinner quickly. I skipped the step where you cook the broccoli in advance, and added it frozen (I didn't want the broccoli to overcook). I also doubled the amount of broccoli called for (the recipe is posted without any changes I made). Recipe courtesy of Pillsbury Christmas 2009.
