1 1/2 cups
whole wheat corkscrew pasta, dry
broccoli, frozen, chopped
1 (10.5 ounce) can
low-fat cream of broccoli soup, condensed
plain bread crumbs
salt-free seasoning blend
I made this vegan by subbing a creamy broccoli soup from the natural section in my grocery store that had a potato base instead of a dairy base. I used 1 1/4 cups of it as it wasn't condensed.
Because of the reduced sodium in resulting dish, it proabably could've used some salt - but 2 out of 3 kids have it a thumbs up and went back for seconds! (The third kid has issues...)
I also bought the seasoned bread crumbs instead of seasoning and crumbs.
I used elbow macaroni, fresh broccoli (that I cooked with the pasta), and I upped the milk to a full cup. I also added two cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese for more cheesy oomph. This was good, made better with the fresh broccoli and extra cheese. Very easy. Next time I'd leave off the bread crumbs and salt free seasoning.
Quick and easy! Great as a side-dish or as a meal with a side salad or applesauce.
Very simple, easy, quick meal. I switched it up and used organic broccoli soup without all the salt. This is a great recipe to build upon too. A little fake chicken in there adds a nice touch. Served it to my little brother and he gave the thumbs up!
I've turned this side dish into a main dish meal by adding canned tuna! The kids love it!
YUMMO! My daughter helped me make this creamy goodness, and she LOVED it! We even added some thinly sliced red peppers.
It was great!! a little bland, but who says that's a bad thing?
Made with cooked fresh broccoli. My kids wouldn't eat more than the obligatory first bite. I didn't like the taste either and felt bad serving it. My husband loved it though so worth a try a guess.
