Having said that, I used pork/venison sausage instead of the sweet Italian it called for and I wish I hadn't. I think this dish needs the sweetness to offset the saltyness of the rest of the ingredients. I couldn't find Cream of Brocoli and settled for Cream of Brocoli and Cheese. I used a package of Wacky Mac instead of the spirals to bring more color to the dish. I did add a bit more milk (about 1/2 c.) because my broccoli (which was fresh, not frozen) just didn't have enough liquid to cook. Overall it wasn't that bad but I won't be making it again. Why? My 3 year old daughter only ate the sausage and the oldest, a 5 yr. old, tried it and wouldn't touch anymore (she's usually a good eater). My 1 year old ate the macaroni okay but it wasn't the ideal dish for a youngster with few teeth. It's worth trying if you have nothing else to cook and have the ingredients on hand. Maybe it was just a personal preference and your family will like it. But I won't be making it again. Always like to try new recipes, though, so thanks for the post!
