    Lainey6605's Note:

    I like to find different ways to make broccoli and especially those ways that are good for you. The recipe is 2 points per serving for a total of 4 servings. This recipe is very cheesy. If you like your vegetables more in the natural state, add more broccoli. This could affect the points values, though.

      Loved this recipe! I always enjoy broccoli with cheese sauce more than plain broccoli but this took the guilt right out of it! I did throw some parmesan into the sauce right at the end to boost the cheese flavour- think the cheddar I got was very mild. Thanks for a lovely recipe!

      I don't really like broccoli but with this cheese sauce it's so good. The sauce is good also on rutabaga or any veggies. I used grainy dijon. Yummy. Thanks Lainey :) Made for Gimme 5 tag game

      We love broccoli and finding ways to get the fat out of our diets. This is so much better for you than regular cheese sauce. The texture was perfect and it came together rather quickly. Thinking the leftovers would be good stuffed inside a baked potato. Thanks for the post.
