Recipe by evelynathens

A great and simple way to do broccoli that is a little out of the ordinary. Very good with roasts.

This was a great combo of flavors. I loved the addition of the bread crumbs - something I don't usually add. I did add some more garlic. Next time I might sear the broccoli a bit more to get it more roasted and flavorful. Thanks!
