Broccoli & Cheese Casserole

Several of the vegetable recipes that I have posted, I really like because they offer so much versatility. What I like about them is that they can be used solely as a side dish, or with an added bit of protein, they can easily become a main dish. This particular recipe is a great side dish, but I like to add a little cooked chicken to it or some cubed cooked ham and turn it into a main dish. What a great thing for lunch the next day. Carry some of the leftovers to work with you and heat up in the microwave. I've also baked this in my crock pot.
