My bestest friend Jodi first cooked this for me YEARS ago. It has since become a family favorite, and the ultimate in comfort food. I've tweaked it here and there, but basically it's her recipe. It's really yummy, and a very good way to get your kids to eat the dreaded BROCCOLI. Oh and...all measurements are guesstimations. I'm not one to measure when I'm cooking. Baking, yes, cooking...NO.
