Reviews for Zesty Garlic Broccoli
"Blander than expected. I used the pepper flakes, but somehow it did not enhance the flavor of the broccoli. Maybe more salt, or garlic? I love broccoli, so will play around with this recipe next time."
"It has become a favorite! I make enough to have leftovers which is excellant added in an omelet or frittata the next day."
