Very easy and yummy. I didn't have any tomato so I missed that out and used a little minced garlic instead of the garlic salt.

This was good, but not something I'll probably make again. Thanks for sharing!! :O)

This was very good and my picky kids gobbled it up. I didn't have any tomatoes so I skipped that, added a lot more broccoli, and I substitued fresh garlic and salt for the garlic salt. This was really easy and nice (sorta) healthy comfort food. I'm sure I'll make it again! Thanks, Rachel!
