This was just OK for us. I followed other reviewers advice and added 1/2 can of milk to the mixture. I only baked mine for 15 minutes and the top was starting to dry. I think with different cheeses this would be better. We didn't think the mozzarello and parmesan gave the casserole much flavor. I think maybe cheddar would have given it a better flavor. I also add the brocolli to the noodles to cook the broccoli before baking it as I like my broccoli cooked and not crunchy.
This was only so-so for us. The flavor is good, and it was certainly easy to make. But even though I added 1/2 cup of milk as suggested by others, it still came out very dry - there was nothing to bubble when it was done. I was hoping for a more "saucy" casserole. I may try again with more liquid, but most likely will keep looking. Sorry!
Hi! I had a little bit of trouble with this recipe. My family will not eat veggies unless they are completely tender and mushy. I should have taken that into consideration and precooked my broccoli cuts, or subbed in chopped broccoli. Getting the cuts to the point of mushiness took waaayyyy longer than 30 minutes, and despite having added 1/2 c of milk and covering the dish with foil, the result was a very dry casserole. I just thought I'd add comments in case anyone else has a mushy vegetable loving family like mine.:) I will definitely make it again! UPDATE: Made again with frozen chopped broccoli, two large (poached and cubed) chicken breasts, with double the sauce plus a cup of milk. Covered it with foil while baking. It came out absolutely fantastic! Very creamy. DH loved it. Thanks very much for the recipe!
