This side dish, from my sister-in-law Mary, is addictive and couldn't be simpler to make. Even folks who normally don't like broccoli love this casserole. This makes an easy, tasty veggie dish to take to a pot luck.

mmmm..I love broccoli and I am always looking for neww recipes, this was a great one. The only thing I would change for myself is I will use less cheese because I thought it was a bit too cheesy for being velveeta cheese.
