This is pretty good comfort food. The family enjoys mac n cheese so the addition of broccoli isn't a hard sell. I also like that there are leftovers. We use sharp cheddar and parmesan for the cheeses. I also just use bread crumbs that I toss with the pan-roasted garlic. Works fine. Good, basic recipe. If you want a bit of kick, you can add some crushed red pepper.
Not super flavorful but certainly kid friendly, I used some different cheeses, see my version at http://www.dishoverdinner.com/2013/07/broccoli-mac-and-cheese-gratin.htmlRead More
Not very flavorful for all the cheeses, might be better w/parm reg instead of the asiago. Pretty easy to make and the bread topping is good but the cheese sauce needs improvement.Read More
I too thought this was very bland. Next time I will use cheddar cheese to hopefully give it some flavor. The good thing about it was my kids did eat the broccoli!Read More
