Baked Broccoli with Garlic and Parmesan Cheese

This dish turned out wonderfully....I ended up baking mine a little too long, so I'd recommend baking the broccoli closer to 20-25 minutes.  It's a wonderful side vegetable dish to pair with any hearty meal!

4 lbs broccoli
7 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
4 cloves of garlic, diced
1 bag Parmesan cheese
lemon juice from 1 lemon

Preheat the oven to 450ºF, and cut the broccoli into florets.  Make sure the broccoli pieces are fairly large and are well dried off.  Put the broccoli in a large bowl and toss with 5 tablespoons of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Add 4 garlic cloves and line a baking sheet with tin foil.  Spread the florets evenly across the pan and roast for 20-35 minutes. Take the pan out of the oven and zest a lemon over the broccoli, squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the broccoli, add 2 Tbsp more olive oil, and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top.  Serve warm.

Hope y'all enjoy!

xoxo, Sara
