Italian Broccoli Recipe

Publisher Photo
I have been making this dish for years. It is a great way to dress up broccoli, a colorful side dish with any roasted meats. I often steam the broccoli ahead of time, cool it quickly in cold water, drain and then, when ready to serve, warm it in the hot garlic oil.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 18, 2012

I'm sorry, but I don't get it. This was very bland, without substance. There are many better ways to prepare unforgettable broccoli, but this isn't one of them.
