Oven Roasted Broccoli

4-5 c. broccoli (about 2 regular-sized heads), cleaned and trimmed
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 Tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

1. Preaheat the oven to 425 degrees
2. Place broccoli on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Drizzle the broccoli with olive oil and then goose to combine and coast each piece.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  
3. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until stems are golden brown and slightly crisp looking.  
4. Remove broccoli from oven and immediately sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Toss and serve.

You might want to know that the girls that make this cookbook feel it's really important for the success of their recipes, that you actually use Kosher Salt and the Fresh ground pepper, not just regular salt or pepper.  Also, when I made it, I used real parmesan cheese, too.  There is a garlicky broccoli variation:  

Toss in 2 cloves of minced garlic before cooking.  For a fresh twist, try a squeeze of fresh lemon juice right after it comes out of the oven. (taken from Our Best Bites)
