You're right, it doesn't get much easier! I also used variation #2 as I had the frozen broccoli w/ cheese sauce in the freezer. Very good and will make again.
These were really good and really easy to make! I used the #2 variation. I didn't have frozen broccoli in cheese sauce so I used plain frozen chopped broccoli and made Cheese Sauce. Turned out great! All 4 variations would be wonderful and I am looking forward to trying the other 3. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)
These are so good and so easy another great way is to use spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce top with pepperoni and lots of mozzarella cheese I slip them into microwave to heat the topping then sprinkle with a bit of chopped onions & olives I also used shredded sharp cheddar cheese in place of mozzarella cheese and it is wonderful
