  • 2 (12-ounce) packages fresh broccoli florets (see Note)

  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 (7-ounce) jar roasted red bell peppers, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Italian bread crumbs

Directions

 
  1. Coat a 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray. Add broccoli and broth, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and microwave on high for 7 minutes.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients except bread crumbs; stir well then spoon over broccoli mixture and sprinkle with bread crumbs.
     
  3. Cover with plastic wrap, and microwave on high for 4 to 5 minutes, until heated through and broccoli is tender.

This is such a great go-along with so many main dishes! Recently, our Test Kitchen served it up with our Baked Rosemary Chicken. Yum!
