Broccoli, Parmesan and Lemon


  • 3 heads broccoli (about 3 pounds)

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 cup freshlt grated parmigiano reggiano

  • 1 lemon juiced


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • 2.

    Trim about 1 inch off the ends of the broccoli stalks and cut the broccoli lengthwise into spears. Arrange the broccoli on a nonstick cookie sheet, drizzle with some olive oil and season with a little bit of salt and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper. Toss to coat evenly. Transfer to the oven and roast for 10 minutes.

  • 3.

    Remove the broccoli from the oven and sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top and bake until the cheese melt and forms a crisp shell over the broccoli, about 10 minutes. Lift the broccoli out onto a platter with a spatula and drizzle with fresh lemon.
