    I made this and would make again, very tasty. I added more garlic and put some fresh spinach in as well. Served over brown rice with mushrooms and onions...yummy! - 8/21/07

  • Incredible!
    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!
