I used spinach instead of broccoli and added orange & yellow bell peppers to the onions. I also added salt, pepper and a dash of garlic powder. It was very good-I can picture adding cooked chicken to it for an entree.


Giving the recipe as it stands 2 stars - Giving what I did with the leftovers 4 stars. Made this recipe 3 nights ago and my husband and I thought it was rather bland. my family ate maybe a 1/3 of it and I wanted to use up what was still left. Last night i added in 1 cup sharp cheddar, salt & pepper, 1 cup cooked chicken and a 1/2 a can french fried onions. It came out great. I will make it again with the additions I made.


Recipe was rather easy to make, however even though everyone said it was good, it was rather bland. I saw salt and pepper being passed around the table by every person. I'd make again but add something for a kick, cayenne pepper or chili powder. As is...was okay.
