We have been making this recipe for a while now and I just had to post. This recipe is a keeper! The whole family absolutely loves it. The only change I make is to skip the garlic salt and add about 4 cloves of crushed garlic to the cheese sauce and increase the salt a bit. I cook the pasta and the broccoli in the same pot/water at the same time. While that's going on, I've got the cheese sauce in another pan and while it is baking, clean up goes quickly. Very glad to have found this winner of a recipe!

This recipe was pretty good. It tasted like a frozen dinner, ther's a lot to clean up and it isn't too healthy. On the other hand its very tasty! I suggest adding more veggies to counter act the unhealthyness; corn, peas, carrots, and cauliflower go well. Young kids would love it, and its a great way to get them to eat vegetables if you load the dish with more than broccoli(sauce covers their taste pretty well). And to make it a full dinner add some chicken. I was out of swiss so i sprinkled just a little bit of cheddar and bread crumbs on top. If you put too much it will cover the flavor of the sauce, which is cheesy enough, so it only adds unnessicary calories. The bread crumbs dry it out. I suggest not baking it, it only drys it out and heats up the kitchen. I give it a 4 and my mom gives it a 3. I don't think it makes the cut to make again.

Very Rich & Tasty! I doubled the amount of pasta and added about 1/2 tsp. of prepared mustard for some extra tang. I also cooked the broccoli with the pasta and added an onion. I've made this a couple of times and will definitely make this again.

this was so good!! and so easy! the sauce took like 5 mins max then i was waiting forr the noodles to cook, so i had to keep stirring the sauce, so i would wait a few mins after you get the noodles going to start the sauce.

This is a great tasting and easy to make dinner. I added one can of drained and quartered artichoke hearts. We add artichokes to everything, this time it was perfect!

Yummy! I made the recipie exactly as written and it turned out great. It's very fattening, that's for sure! I will probably reduce the amount of butter I use next time and see how the dish turns out. Great side dish for a company meal. Will make again.

This is like "GLORY OF MAC &CHEESE" I DIDNT HAD SWISS CHEESE SO I GRATED SOME CHEDDAR ON THE TOP JUST BEFORE SERVING AND IT WAS BANGING I ALSO SKIP THE NUTMEG AND THYME WASNT SURE ABOUT THAT BUT IT WAS DELICIOUS

Very good but very cheesy. Next time I would add some boneless chicken breasts and more veggies, but overall very good as is. Also the recipe calls for 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of garlic salt.. seemed like a lot of salt, especially with all that cheese, so I used a pinch of salt and subsituted garlic powder for the garlic salt and it was fine.
