This is a super-easy recipe. I prefer to use either asiago cheese, or pecorino romano cheese. To make this a full meal, I add cooked chicken before I put the cheese on. This also makes a great gluten-free meal when you substitute gluten-free fettuccini noodles for regular noodles.

Simple and delish!
It doesn't have much flavor, but Im a huge broccoli fan so I still loved it. Next time I'm going to add more thyme and maybe a hint of fresh lemon juice.
