I really need to get back into my ffwd groove - this was more a week for making soup for a friend, dealing with carpet cleaners, and of course, the opening home game in baseball! So, I'll admit it up front, I made this at the last minute. And generally, it was dinner. But it was a good dinner. Also, I took Dorie's advice and assumed it would only be good when it was made, so cut back the recipe. I probably wasn't particularly scientific about it, so my results might not have been strictly accurate. Just sayin'.

clearly not a lot of time spent on arrangement either.... hmmm...
What didn't work? My broccoli never actually got fully warmed up when I mixed it in with the crumbs. I ended up just tossing the crumbs on top, because they didn't actually cling to the broccoli. But those are easily fixed. I also think you could easily make the crumbs ahead, cook the veggies at the last minute and toss it all together.
