A favorite of my husband and daughter. A few reviewers have mentioned the number of pans used. This is how I avoid that being a problem. After I cook & drain the broccoli, I place it in the casserole dish while I use the same pan to make the sauce. I then pour the broccoli back into the pan to coat it and return it all to the casserole dish. Rinse the saucepan out, it doesn't need to be 'clean' just rinsed, and then use the same pan to make the melted butter and bread crumb mixture. If you use the microwave to cook your broccoli, just use the casserole dish to cook it in. Hope that helps!
