My husband and I devoured about a pound of broccoli after making this recipe- we couldn't leave it alone! Oh yeah, a tip for making sure all the broccoli pieces are evenly coated; put the oil mixture and broccoli in a gallon size zip-lock bag and "shake it up". Thanks for sharing this super yummers recipe. Between roasting and grilling my veggies, I doubt I'll ever go back to steaming.

This really makes all the difference in the world in the flavor of broccoli. Roasting it with the garlic makes for a very mellow, mild garlicky flavor. Both my kids raved about it, which is HUGE because they are not veggie eaters AT ALL. I added a very generous splash of fresh lemon juice instead of the Parmesan just before serving and I think that was a great addition. I doubt I'll prepare broccoli any other way in the future. Don't think the Parmesan is necessary but I'm sure it is tasty that way, too.

Excellent! I love broccoli cooked this way. The parmesan is a nice touch, but to save calories, is not necessary. I use only about 1-2T olive oil and a lot more garlic that I crush lightly before adding to the sheet. I like to cook this about 20 minutes, but I like my veggies cooked. Thanks for posting, riffraff, this is a great recipe!

This was wonderful! The broccoli kept it's flavor, and it stayed nice and crisp. We will make this again and again, thanks for posting!

Delicious and easy! I didn't use the full amount of olive oil, maybe about 2 1/2 tablespoons. I added some slivered almonds...really good!

This was delicious! I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic cloves, and I did not add any parmesan. I cooked mine for about 25 minutes...we like our roasted vegetables with a lot of char! Thanks for sharing!

This was very good. I had roasted vegetables before, but this was my first attempt at roasting broccoli. To save a few fat grams I used only 3 tbsp. oil and omitted the parmesan cheese. I used extra garlic and roasted the broccoli for 25 minutes as I like my veggies to be a little softer. Now I have a tastier purpose for those big bags of pre-cut broccoli florets that I buy at Costco. I was so tired of steaming! Thanks for posting.

I love roasted broccoli. The garlic and red pepper flakes really added a nice flavor. Thanks for sharing riffraff. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag.

This broccoli is simply amazing! Our whole family loved it, and our picky 2 year old actually ate broccoli, instead of throwing it for the first time! This will be my go to cooking method for broccoli from now on. Thank you riffraff!
