    pretty good side dish, but I would like to try and spice it up some. Maybe some onion next time. I think mine needed more salt as well. The Parmesan cheese made it a keeper for those of us looking for different sides while watching our weight. Thanks for sharing SusieQusie!

    This recipe made a nice side dish to serve with steaks. Since I was out of parmesan cheese, I had to substitute sharp cheddar. Can't wait to make this again using the parm! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    I followed Marra's directions for the extra puffing. I was making this to freeze for later and I am not sure it will take well to freezing. It was yummy fresh though.

    Love the flavors! I actually forgot to buy broccoli, and had to use a package of frozen (thawed) spinach. Worked out great. Thanks, this is so delish!
