Roasted broccoli with asiago

Fresh broccoli called my name at a recent visit to our farmers’ market. Try this incredibly delicious and simple recipe. You will like this. 

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 large head of broccoli
  • 2 ounces Asiago cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 

Cut the main stems off the broccoli leaving about 2 inches. Cut each “crown” into quarters lengthwise. A crown is the section of the head of broccoli that looks like it’s connected. 

Toss the broccoli with olive oil in a large bowl. Spread it out on a baking sheet. 

Roast it for about 20 minutes until it is just beginning to brown. 

Meanwhile, grate the Asiago cheese in the bowl used to toss the broccoli. Toss the roasted, hot broccoli with the Asiago.
