Perfect Roasted Broccoli

perfect roasted broccoli recipe

Hi guys!

I need to tell you one thing today… You really, really, really have to try this roasted broccoli recipe! It is amazing! Before I gave it a try, I never really knew that broccoli could reach such a high level of deliciousness. And it can. Indeed! I found out that when the right spices and cheese join the game and roasting comes to seal the deal, a finger lickin’ good dish gets created.

I made this recipe a few days ago and could not sleep well until I made it again. That pretty much sums up how tasty this thing is…

Here are all the necessary details…

3. Wash the florets under running water and place them on a larger baking pan.

    Broccoli are gorgeus! I eat them the whole winter, mostly with pasta: cook broccoli together with pasta (into the same boiling water) and then toss in a pan with olive oil, garlic and red pepper. Add parmesan when it’s in plate 🙂
