This is a very colorful recipe, snarfled from the Healthy Recipes from ACE, the American Council on Exercise. They use nonfat mozzarella, but part skim is yummier.

  1. clean broccoli, chop off tough ends and discard.
  2. cut off florets and pare tough broccoli "bark" off stems, then cut into small spears, and steam until tender, 8-10 minutes.

This was a very tasty and lovely recipe. I cooked the trio of broccoli, tomato and fresh herbs for about 7 minutes. I also used fresh oregoano and part skim mozzarella. This was a wonderful combination. Thank you for posting such a nice tasting, healthy recipe. Fresh farmer's market tomatoes really do add a wonderfully fresh taste.

I liked this a lot, especially because I had all the ingredients and didn't have to make a trip to the store! Leftovers reheat well for lunch the next day. This is a nice healthy bring to work snack!
