Drunken Italian Broccoli

"This is a delicious, easy, and very flavorful way to cook broccoli. No more boring, mushy, boiled broccoli after you try this. I've made this with cauliflower too and it's yummy both ways. This is another Mr. Food recipe. Enjoy!"

    I wanted a tasty Italian side dish to serve with a pasta lunch, and I chose this recipe. And I’m glad I did! It was super simple to make, and the two other ingredients blended together well to flavor the broccoli perfectly as it steamed in the saucepan. We all really like broccoli, and I’m going to keep this simple (yet tasty) broccoli recipe handy. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Midwest Maven. We loved it!

    Just delicious. My DH cooked the broccoli this morning and put it into the frige. At dinner I had it cold as a salad with a light coating is the same dressing. It was pure pleasure and I'll certainly make it this way again. Made for ZWT7.

    A nice way to do broccoli tart used frzen broccoli and i feel the dressing was better on the florets than the spears . Good job

    i don't buy salad dressings so i mixed up a vinagrette & used that. nice & easy. I did keep stirring & kept the heat on medium low so it wouldn't scorch on the bottom. a nice change of pace with broccoli! thank you - made for zwt7.
