    I love the flavors here and broccoli is my favorite veg. However, 759 calories and 49% fat is too rich for my blood. I boiled the broccoli and mixed it with the garlic, bread crumbs, 1 1/2 tablespoons of parm cheese and no more than 1 tablespoon of olive oil (no butter). That mix went into a small baking dish (I made 2 servings) and baked @ 300 for the given time. The result was more drier but delicious and easy to live with.

    This is a nice side dish. I did skip the step of cooking the broccoli in olive oil before baking in the oven, rather I steamed my broccoli in the microwave, tossed with rest of the required ingredients oiled a cookie sheet with olive oil and popped in the oven. Easy peasy, and very delicious flavor! Thank you gailanng. Made for Every Day is a Holiday Tag May 2009
