Cheesy Broccoli Ranch Casserole

Do you ever have those times, where you're low on cash and low on groceries but happen to have a bunch of random ingredients at your disposal?



That is my life right now, and sometimes to be honest.. it's kinda fun to me. I like just rummaging my fridge and making delicious meals with what I have leftover from other recipes.

This one.. is pretty genius. I mean, when something like this comes together I wonder why I haven't thought of it before?

We all know ranch is God's nectar, and broccoli is good in ranch. And cheese. And broccoli casserole is legit the best.

I could yammer on with my incomplete sentences about cheese and ranch all I want but how about I just share this lovely casserole recipe with you and we move along with our lives, yes?

Keep Reading for the Recipe!
