Roasted Broccoli with lemon and parmesan cheese

Usually, I prefer to steam broccoli, and sometimes even load it up with cheese.  But today I tried a new recipe.  I roasted the broccoli and then when I pulled it out, topped it with some lemon juice and Parmesan cheese……sooooo good. Here’s the recipe:

2 cups broccoli (washed and completely dried)

5 tbs olive oil

1 1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

4 cloves minced garlic

1/2 – 1 small lemon

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese



preheat over to 425

place broccoli on a cooking sheet

toss with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper

roast for 20-25 minutes (mix once about half way through)

as soon as you take it out of the oven, squeeze with lemon juice and then add 1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese.
