Roasted lemon broccoli with parmesan 

Print Friendly and PDF

The love of broccoli in this house runs deep. I don't know if I will ever tell my kids the only way I ate it growing up was stewed in CHEESE... Lots and LOTS of cheese! 
Then, I got married and my husband asked if we could not put so much cheese on the broccoli.  What was a girl to do?  I tried and tried. I gagged and gagged.  Now, I'm over all that and love it any way it is cooked! 
I have learned you can actually add seasonings to it and it tastes great! Don't be scared to try new things.
