This stuff is fantastic! It is a household favorite and we try to have it at least once a week. It is a great way to get broccoli in to your diet. you can use butter, i guess, but it will NOT be as good. Also make sure that the olive oil is extra-virgin. no other type of oil will do. I reccommend filipo berio. also, do not get colavita or botticelli, since they are greasy, disgusting brands. Botticelli is not even extra virgin.
