Made this tonight and really enjoyed it. Nice change of pace recipe for broccoli--easy and quick. I did add about 3 times the amount of water over the last couple minutes of cooking--because I prepared in a 12" cast iron skillet. Came out perfectly!
Leftovers were still great the next night, too! - 7/14/07
