Quick, easy and delicious side dish. I found this in Southern Living, November 2005. My family loves this one!

So simple that it makes you wonder why you didn't think of that before. The butter and the toasted pecans really add something to the flavor of the broccoli. I served this as a side with Creamy Baked Rice and some chicken, artichoke and mozzarella sausages, but it could easily pair with almost any meal. Great way to dress up plain old broccoli.

The addition of pecans and butter is wonderful. Simple yet very flavorful. I always use almonds with veges, but will now use pecans on occasion.
