You're crazy if you don't make this

This is the Barefoot Contessa's roasted broccoli, and it is crazy good. Even if you think you don't like broccoli (like Mark), try this. Mark liked it. I LOVED it.

Preheat oven to 425.

Cut broccoli into florets. I used one big head, but I guess you can use as much or little as you want. Just adjust oven time so as not to burn.

Toss broccoli with olive oil, salt, pepper, and four cloves of sliced garlic. The original recipe also calls for pine nuts, but I didn't have any and I wasn't going to the store, so I didn't use 'em.

Cook 20-25 minutes until lightly browned. Again, watch this. Mine was closer to 18 minutes.

Finish with the zest and juice of one lemon, grated parmesan cheese, and some fresh julienned basil.

Best broccoli ever!
