    Great! I threw the whole thing in the oven to keep warm at 350 for about 5-10 min at the end. Could also benefit from some Parmesan cheese...but really, what couldn't?

    Liked this side dish; did not strain it. I used the high end on the garlic, but surprisingly I think I could have added even more. A little squeeze of lemon over this went nicely.

    Tucking this easy, flavorful veggie recipe into my best-of-the-best file. We absolutely loved this. I like that it's easily adaptable, too. If we don't feel in the mood for spice, we can just omit the red pepper flakes. Loved the garlic oil. This helps change up our weekly broccoli. Thank you! Made for ZWT8 Family Picks
