    Great taste for minimal effort. Everyone loved it, including my 4-year-old. Used Parmesan instead of mozzarella.

    Very tasty broccoli dish!! Loved the ease of making this and loved the flavor. I'm starting to really warm up to nuked broccoli. This is the 2nd such dish that I have enjoyed the flavor and texture of. Will definitely make this one again. Loved the combo of tomatoes and broccoli. FYI...does not re-heat well in the event you have leftovers.

    Loved the combination of flavours. Used finely grated parmesan for the cheese. This goes into my 'keeper' file :)

    This is very good in texture and taste. I made it the second time without the mozzerella and used peccorino-reggiano sprinkled over the top instead. For me I liked the consistency better. I do like it as a quick side dish. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    This is a quick and easy side. I rinsed the broccoli and left off the additional water. After adding the herbs and tomatoes, I sprinkled the cheese on top and covered the dish for a few minutes. The cheese melted and the tomatoes were warm without additional time in the microwave. DH said he really enjoyed the combination of broccoli and tomatoes.
