I picked this recipe out because I had a bag of fresh broccoli about to go bad (not my favorite veggie), and needed a way to use it up quickly. I have to admit that I wasn't expecting it to be great, but I was wrong! This is a great way to use up odds & ends of veggies, but would also be worth buying them for it. I used 4 cups of brocolli, 2 slightly soft red potatoes, some carrots & green onion. I didn't see the need to add any more veggies, but I think it would be good with any combination based on what you have on hand. I used skim milk, and sprinkled the vegetables with salt, pepper and some dried rosemary before pouring the sauce over them. I think that the spices added a lot, and wouldn't recommend making it without at least some salt & pepper. I think this recipe converted me into a broccoli lover. It's going into my 10 star cookbook!
