Roasted Broccoli

Um, Holy Crap!! Whatever side dish you had planned for your dinner tonight, forget it. You want, no you NEED to make this! This is seriously the best way I have ever eaten broccoli, ever! And I like mybroccoli. When I found this recipe via Pinterest, it was labeled "The Best Broccoli of Your Life". Well, its hard to resist trying something that was labeled like that, so make it we did. And OH! It was awesome. Even after a 12 hour shift following a 24 hour shift, Joel woke up from his zombie-like state and said "Wow, this is really good! Whatever you did to it, it hit the nail on the head!" Yeah! He said that! A complete sentence!

I'm not sure I will ever be able to eat plain broccoli ever again...

Make it!
