Parmesan Fried Broccoli

"My mom got this recipe from somewhere and it is one of our family's favorites! We make this for most of our parties, and then just because. It tastes great with lots of parmesan cheese melted on top."

    This is delicious and easy to make! I added some green bell peppers and onion to the broccoli and steamed them for about 7 minutes. Then I scooped into the pan with the butter and added salt and pepper. In the last couple of seconds, I added the parm. Yum!! I will be making this often and passing this recipe on to any other broccoli lovers I know. Thanks!

    Good and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I used a 16 ounce bag of frozen broccoli. This was a nice change to our usual broccoli.

    very simple, yet tasty side dish. I made mine with Romano cheese, and it was very good. Thanks!

    This broccoli is simple to make yet presents so well I'd serve it to company, and the buttery parmesan flavour is lovely. What I really like is that there aren't a lot of competing flavours. Excellent and easy side dish! Thank you, Kristen.

I have a degree in Nutrition and Food Science and am very interested in trying new recipes. I ususally get cooking duties because I get home from work early enough to start dinner. But I definaly do not mind, especially since finding 'Zaar! The recipe on this website are simply outstanding and I love the ease of use that this website has. It has definaly become my favorite cooking website.
