Roasted Broccoli

I always cook broccoli the same way. My boys will eat it but not always enthusiastically.
So I decided to try it a different way tonight for dinner. I thought I'd share with you my faithful readers the way I did it in case you would like to try it. By the way all the boys big and little were fighting over it. I obviously did NOT have enough to go around. After some goggling and reading a couple of different websites this is what I came up with...

Turn oven on to 400 degrees
Cut about a pound of broccoli {I think I had less than a pound} into bite sized pieces.
Put in a bowl and add,
 about 3 TBSP of olive
 chopped garlic {I used the stuff from the jar}
sprinkle with Salt & Pepper
generously sprinkle on Parmesan cheese {I used the powder Kraft kind}
Stir to coat and distribute ingredients
Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam
roast for about 15-20 minutes until edges of broccoli are browned

Ryan told me I found a new way to make broccoli.
The only one who didn't enjoy it was Gage and he is going through a picky eating stage.
I will definitely make this again and next time use a bigger batch of broccoli!

That sounds really, really good. I still don't think my boys would touch it. They think broccoli is an abomination and something I try to poison them with. I'll make a small batch for Mark and I and let the boys have a sample if they will. I'll let you know how it goes.:)
