"This was decent for a way to quickly spice up some plain broccoli. It wasn't my favorite and I doubt we'd make this again, but it was still tasty. I did steam fresh broccoli instead of using frozen and the microwave. I also used olive oil instead of butter."

"Easy to make and tastes very good but as much as I like garlic, I will use less next time."
