My family loves this meal-we sometimes vary it by adding cooked chicken with it. Very easy to make-nice and quick!

Quick, easy and cheesy. This is an excellent choice for a last minute dinner party because you probably have all the ingredients handy. The broccoli and bacon are mellowed by the creamy addition of mozzarella and parmesan cheese. All you need is a salad and garlic bread.
