Roasted Broccoli

1 large head of broccoli (for 2 to 3 people)
Olive Oil
1/2 lemon (for 1 large head of broccoli)
1 clove of garlic sliced
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. (The key to roasting vegetables is to make sure the oven is hot, 425 is perfect).

This is where one of those quarter sheet pans comes in handy.  As I mentioned in my Pumpkin Bar recipe, I love these pans. Some people call them Jelly Roll pans.

Cut your head of broccoli into nice florets.  Don't make them too small.

Toss all the florets with Olive Oil.  Be generous, don't skimp.

Place them on the sheet pan.  Throw in the sliced garlic and sprinkle with Kosher salt and black pepper.

Roast in 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes.  Until it just starts to get a little bit brown.

Take out of oven, and grate lemon zest over florets.  Squeeze the juice from 1/2 lemon over all.

Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan.

Hello Broccoli.......Where have you been all my life?
