    Gina Farina's Note:

    My Italian mother made broccoli at least 2 times a week, every week -- and now I do the same for my DH and 3 sons: they devour mountains of this broccoli. It's so good for you!

      How my mom always made broccoli too. It is quick and simple and tasty. We used Meyer lemons from our tree and that's the best part!

      It doesn't get better than this. Fresh, flavorful, outstanding flavor (including the fresh garlic). Sometimes I sprinkle it with a bit of grated parmesan or Balsamic vinegar instead of lemon. Many thanks for your lovely recipe.

      LOVED IT! My husband and I ate the whole bowl! Followed instructions accept for the salt. I thought the garlic would over power it, but it didn't. The lemon is what made it so light fresh and yummy! I had it with grilled chicken, but I know this will go well with fish steak or anything. Healthy too! Thanks for sharing!
