Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan

For our 2nd recipe in our 52 new recipes we tried a new delicious way to eat our veggies.  We eat broccoli with almost every home cooked meal, so we were in desperate need of a mixing up.

Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan

1 1/2 lbs broccoli florets
3-4 tbsp olive oil (I used a garlic EVOO that I had on hand)
Juice from 1/2 lemon or about 1 tbsp
Kosher salt
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, toss broccoli and minced garlic with olive oil and lemon juice until lightly coated. Sprinkle with salt and toss to coat.
Arrange the broccoli florets in a single layer on a baking sheet that has been rubbed with olive oil or lined with parchment paper.
Roast for 16-20 minutes or until done. You can check with a fork and the outside should be slightly browned.
Put the roasted broccoli back in the bowl and toss with freshly ground black pepper and parmesan cheese. It's ok to be generous with the black pepper. It is delicious!
Serve immediately!
