What a great way to make broccoli more exciting! I did use onion powder instead of the onion because I felt like a smooth sauce. It came out great, very tasty. Thanks for posting.

This was quite a tasty change from just steaming the broccoli and sprinkling parm and lemon. The sauce went together easily - the only change I made was shallots for onions, since I had 2 to use. I had 2 fair sized heads of fresh broccoli, and plenty of sauce - for leftovers another night. Thanks for posting, SkinnyMinnie
