    These are good! I used the dough for Laudee's Recipe #50178, and divided the dough into 12 portions. I was afraid I couldn't get the pockets closed well enough. A little of the filling did leak, but not so much. I sauted 2 small red bell peppers with the garlic, instead of using jarred pimiento. Didn't change anything else. I'm looking forward to freezing some and having them for future lunches. I used 2 cups of cooked fresh broccoli, which I cooked first. I will want to make sure to salt to taste next time. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.

    I have been making this recipe for the last year. I found it in a free recipe card that I got in the mail. It is excellent. We make it at least once a month. My two young children love it and does my husband. Its a great, yummy way to get your kids to eat broccoli! Love it, Love it, Love it!

    These were great! I substituted dried sweet cranberries for the roasted red peppers, and added a little gorgonzola cheese, but your recipe is a winner!
