Parmesan Roasted Broccoli

This is so good! I don't even particularly like broccoli and I thought this was awesome. The lemon and basil give it such a fresh taste. I made the mistake of only making half the recipe - everyone wanted more! I now understand why this has become a favorite in the food blogging community.

Parmesan Roasted Broccoli

4 to 5 pounds broccoli, trimmed and seperated into florets
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp lemon zest
2 T lemon juice
3 T toasted pine nuts
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
2 T basil, julienned
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Toss broccoli with garlic, 5 T olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Place on baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes until tender and some of the tips have browned.
  • Remove from oven and add  1 1/2 T olive oil and remaining ingredients; mix and serve hot.
