I adore the idea of this recipe, but i have tried it several (more than three) times, and every time the broccoli becomes extremely dried out and burns within minutes (and the garlic gets incinerated) far short of the cook time listed.
Variations I have tried included using less oil, using more oil and tossing the broccoli in it, leaving more rinse water on the broccoli to lend more moisture, buying broccoli from a different market, and reducing the heat 50 degrees while attempting to cook it longer. My oven is pretty dead-on in its' temperature setting, so that was not the issue, but I may try reducing the temperature even further.

I SO want this recipe to work for me, but as of now, I have not been able to replicate edible results. =( The recipe does not mention covering the dish, but I may also try that someday.

I loved this! DH didn't like it at all...I think he didn't care for the garlic in it. I thought the flavors blended well together. He didn't care for the touch of crispness while I like the change. I guess we are really opposites. :) Thanks for posting. I made this based on LifeisGood review during the best of 2010 reviews.

I love roasted vegetables and these were very good. Simple and yummy. Made as stated, mine turned out a little too done. Next time I will leave bigger broccoli spears and check them sooner. I can't wait to try them again! Thanks for posting a simple, great veggie recipe! This was on Debbwl's best of 2010 list. :)

This is just classic, and I love the addition of parmesan. I added the salt and pepper prior to cooking, then sprinkled with parm after. Yum! Thanks for posting! Made for PARTY 2010.

Great side! Roasting the broccoli with the garlic gives it wonderful flavors and the parmesan is just the best topping for this simple side. Made as written and will make again. Thanks for the post.
