This oven roasted broccoli recipe combines Parmesan cheese, garlic and lemon in one delicious and healthy dish. It's a pared down, cheaper version of Ina Garten's famous roasted broccoli, but every bit as tasty. Good enough to convert even the biggest broccoli hater!

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Wash head of broccoli and cut it into florets. I also like to peel the stems and cut them into slices (tastes just like broccoli - waste not, want not).
Peel and slice 5 or 6 good sized cloves of garlic. Toss them together with broccoli on a sheet pan.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Toss around. Roast in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Take the pan out and use a spatula to scrape everything off the pan and toss it again. Put back in the oven for 5 more minutes. (I like broccoli with a little firmness left in it.)
Take pan out. Wash a lemon and use a zester* to grate some lemon zest all over the broccoli.
Squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the broccoli (be careful not to drop lemon seeds in it - they taste terrible).
Use your zester again to grate a generous amount of fresh Parmesan cheese over the broccoli. Serve hot.
* I have a zester similar to this one and I use it all the time. It's a really inexpensive but useful kitchen tool.
