Lemon Roasted Broccoli

While making the lemon roasted cauliflower, I thought about how well lemon and broccoli go together, so I gave it a try. I've roasted broccoli with garlic before on a half-sheet pan, but this keeps all the juices together and the broccoli browns without getting too crispy. I like it this way better, and even more than the cauliflower!

1 head broccoli, cut into bite sized florets
Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
6 medium cloves garlic, each in 3-4 slices
1 lemon, cut in half and juiced

Preheat oven to 400*F

Warm the EVOO in a large, oven-proof saucepan over medium heat. Add the broccoli florets, salt & pepper, and garlic slices. Saute for a few minutes, tossing to coat. Add the lemon juice and lemon quarters and toss to combine. 

Roast in the oven 20-25 minutes, until the broccoli is at your preferred texture and the garlic is soft and sweet. Really yummy!
