Beef & Brocoli Casserole

Now that we've established the fact that I cook way too many casseroles; lets make it official. It might be an idea to create a Casseroles category on this blog; it will be so much easier for you casserole lovers to find my recipes. Anyway, I decided to make a casserole this evening because they are super convenient. As I'm coming to the end of my course, I barely have any free time and so cooking in bulk saves me having to cook the next day or two. This nutrient packed casserole is a great way to get in your five a day from just one dish; of course it wouldn't hurt to throw in a fruity desert. Not fond of brocoli? No problem, the spices I use in this will completely change your outlook on the smallest trees nature has to offer.
