Good basic broccoli side dish. I steamed my broccoli in the microwave in a microwave bag and then added the other ingredients. Made for a nice vegetable dish.

Very Good! I have always had cheddar cheese with my broccoli, but not parmesan. The parmesan cheese was delicious and was a great combination! Prepared as a participant in the March 2010 "March Into Spring Event" in the Diabetic Forum.
