I recently signed up for a “fresh veggie of the season” delivery service and on the list was “broccoli di cicco”! Never really having tried this before, I decided to give it a whirl! And I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was! Tender, flavorful, and very healthy – what more can you ask for in a vegetable!
1 lb. broccoli di cicco, washed and trimmed of tough bottom stems
4 T. butter
Salt & pepper
Parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 450.
Place the butter in a large glass casserole dish and melt it in the hot oven.
Place the broccoli in the dish. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic. Using your hands, mix it all up, incorporating the butter all over the broccoli.
Cover and cook for about 20 minutes.
Uncover and grate some parmesan cheese on top. Return to the oven and broil for about 3 minutes.
