    CountryLady's Note:

    This is another quick, easy, delicious weeknight dish! Frying the garlic just until it is golden gives it a nutty, slightly spicy flavour that goes well with broccoli - but don't go past that golden colour or it will become bitter.

      Very good. Only change was to add about 1/2 small can of chicken broth for additional flavor. I make broccoli and pasta often, but this was a nice change with the anchovies.

      I made this recipe for Dd to eat while I was away. She loved it & finished up the whole casserole over a 3 day period. She also made sure that I understand she wishes me to make this again. I did taste it myself & I would enjoy it more by adding 1tsp of hot red pepper flakes for a bigger kick. Thank you CountryLady.

      Loved the addition of anchovies to this recipe. Only thing I did different is to microwave my broccoli. I always cook it by adding just a tablespoon or so of water, covering it and microwave for about 8 minutes. Comes out perfect every time. Great quick and easy dish. Thanks, CL.
