Very good. This freezes well and tastes just as good re-cooked. Thanks!

I really enjoyed this meal and my partner loved it. I didn't weigh my veggies and opted to just use fresh broccoli rather than a cheesy frozen version (to be honest, I don't think we can get that here anyway). It was beautiful and creamy even without that extra cheese. I did sprinkle a little parmesan on top. I followed the recipe very closely and aside from the previous notes, made as written. This was wonderful for our winter.

I tripled the garlic in this to 3 gloves and I also added about 4 oz extra broccoli. I used maybe 7 ounces of spinach instead of just 4. I used the 2 cups half and half but added a tiny but of milk to accommodate the extra vegetables. I actually made it according to the directions but didn't like how lacking it looked in vegetables so I cooked up some more before putting it in the oven. Of course, I am a vegetarian so not everyone will want the extra veggies. This came out really well. It was rich, creamy, and for such a simple dish, the flavors came together very nicely. It goes great with a side salad and garlic bread.

Very good. I used part fat free 1/2 and 1/2 and part regular and it thickened nice! With the gnocchi it was about 8 weight watchers points so it was great with a side salad!

Yum! This was really a lovely, warming, and surprisingly hearty meal! I used 1% milk for the whipping cream as that is what I had on hand, and while it didn't thicken as well it was fine after I added 1/2 T more flour and refrigerated the final casserole before baking. I also used mozzarella for the parmesan as I thought that might help the sauce thicken. Tri-colored gnocchi was gorgeous in this, and next time I am tempted to use chard instead of spinach (I used fresh spinach quickly blanched). I am also tempted to add some white beans as I think they would be lovely, though in all honesty this was fairly filling on its own! Thanks for posting, JB! Made for Veg*n Swap 27.

Delicious! To be honest I made some changes because of lack of ingredients. My DH wanted meat. I simmered 1 pound Sweet Italian Sausage with chopped onion and 6 cloves of garlic. Drain of the fat,stirred in the flour,added 3 slices of American cheese, broccoli, grated some sharp cheese on top and finished with grated Parmesan. I used 1 cup of half and half and a cup of whipping cream. From here on I followed the recipe. The bottom line is this recipe is a winner even if you change it up. Me DH and 92 yr old M-I-L ate all but a cup and a half. DH said he wasn't fond of Gnocchi & asked for seconds and M-I-L never had Gnocchi that weren't made with tomato sauce. She loved it. Me I had 3 servings!

Wonderful! I have made this several times now. Everyone keeps asking for it. I substituted cauliflower for the broccoli and it tastes just as great. I quite often make this as a main dish and just add a side salad. Great comfort food. Really nice on a cold rainy miserable day.

This was absolutely delicious! DD6 and DS2 both ate theirs with no complaint. The only bad thing about this is that it dirties 3 pans! :) Thanks for posting, this one is definitely a keeper.
