Easy Cheesy Broccoli Bake: Pink Ribbon Recipe

Easy Cheesy Broccoli Bake: Pink Ribbon Recipe

Hi everybody :)

Continuing with my Pink Ribbon Recipe, I pick this recipes to share because I LOVE broccoli.  It's one of my favorite vegetables. 

This recipe may be a good choice for cancer patients because it's great for nausea, one of the side effects of cancer treatment.  Broccoli is a great source of folic acid, which aid in normal body functions. But as I stated here the doctor warns excessive folic acid can interfere with the effectiveness of a chemotherapy called methotrexate, so please check with the doctor first, if you're on a special diet.

Easy Cheesy Broccoli Bake adapted Betty Crocker Living with Cancer Cookbook

1/4 cup water

What I Did and/or Think:
I followed the recipe except for the changes in Italic. 

The Taste: I really like the taste of this casserole. I served it with boneless/skinless chicken baked breast topped with a cheese sauce. GOOD EATI think the next time I do this I will use Uncle Ben Long Grain Rice, my favorite; so this will be REPEATED!
ENJOY! Come again...
