1 lemon, halved crosswise, seeds removed
4 garlic cloves, smashed
2 bunches broccolini, ends trimmed (or 1 pound broccoli, thinly sliced lengthwise, stem and all)
3 tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

Roasted Broccolini and Lemon With Parmesan Directions

    Heat oven to 425 degrees. Thinly slice half the lemon into rounds and set the other half aside. Toss lemon slices, garlic and broccolini with the olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, making sure everything is evenly coated, especially the broccolini tips so they get fried and crisp.
  1. Sprinkle with Parmesan and roast until the broccolini is bright green, starting to char and the cheese is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Remove from the oven, squeeze the remaining half of the lemon over the top and serve.
