Great taste for minimal effort. Everyone loved it, including my 4-year-old. Used Parmesan instead of mozzarella.

Very tasty broccoli dish!! Loved the ease of making this and loved the flavor. I'm starting to really warm up to nuked broccoli. This is the 2nd such dish that I have enjoyed the flavor and texture of. Will definitely make this one again. Loved the combo of tomatoes and broccoli. FYI...does not re-heat well in the event you have leftovers.

Loved the combination of flavours. Used finely grated parmesan for the cheese. This goes into my 'keeper' file :)
