Roasted Broccoli W Lemon Garlic & Toasted Pine Nuts

I adopted this recipe when another chef left the site. The text from my original review stated, "I just made this for my lunch. Yum! I had a smaller portion of broccoli, and therefore downsized the recipe. The flavors are awesome together. I used all fresh ingredients (no bottled lemon juice here!). Since I was cooking only for myself, I prepared the lemon garlic butter in a small saute pan and then tossed the broccoli in that pan to coat it. (No need to dirty a serving dish for just me!) I can't wait to prepare this for others. The lemon garlic butter lends this to be a great side for fish...I am thinking grilled salmon would be great." I have since prepared this as a side dish for a multitude of meals. I love the broccoli, lemon, garlic combo. Show more
