Roasted Broccoli

I made something healthy for NPA this past week.

Really, I did.  And it was also very tasty and I'm going to make this again and again and again.

Or at least cook it this way.

I had seen a recipe for Roasted Broccoli on Facebook, and it looked good, and easy to make as well.

I mean anything that has garlic added to it has to be good, right?

So I got a nice bunch of Broccoli, and roasted it, took it to NPA and it got devoured, and was pretty much guilt free as well.  

Let's face it, we all need something guilt free from time to time.   Well, food wise that is.

Here's the how to's...

Preheat the oven to 375 deg.  
Take a head of broccoli and either chop it up or cut the little florets apart. 
Rinse and dry them off, then take a couple tablespoons of olive oil, and add a couple of minced cloves of garlic to it, I used my microplane for this,  a little salt and pepper and then put the broccoli into a ziploc bag, and pour the garlic olive oil mixture over it.  Kinda toss it around in the bag so that the oil gets all over the broccoli and then dump it onto either a greased pan or the reusable parchment paper you have or a silpat baking sheet.
Take a moment and inhale the wonderful garlicky scent (Umm, that would be me, I love the smell of garlic)
Place in the oven for 15 minutes, then give it a stir, and roast an additional 15 minutes.
Take an 'artistic' picture cause something brushed past your foot as you took a picture.  And you went EEEEE and jerked the camera a little.
Take a deep breath and then take another picture. 
And after tasting the broccoli, decide it needs a little something so grab a hunk of Romano cheese out of the fridge and add just a sprinkling of cheese on top.   

As I said, this was very good, the roasting brought out a wonderful sweetness in the broccoli and I will definitely do it this way again.  

I'm heading to the store in a little bit, I think I'll check out the fresh broccoli...
