Make It Mine
  • For other toppings you can use 15 Ritz crackers crushed and sprinkled over the top before baking. Or you can try 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs mixed with 2 tablespoons of melted butter and sprinkle that over the top before baking. Either of these can be used alone or on conjunction with the cheese on top.
  • Try adding 1 or two cups of chopped up chicken (think rotisserie chicken) to this dish when you are mixing the ingredients together. Chicken goes great with all these ingredients and will make this dish even more filling.
  • You can also saute 8 ounces of mushrooms, drain them and add them with the noodles and broccoli. Since we are already using cream of mushroom soup, the mushrooms would bring that flavor out even more.

This sounds fabulous. What does one use if they do not have a food processor? Also, can this recipe be frozen?
