Roasted Brocolli

This is one of my standby dishes. It goes together in a flash, and allows you to focus on something else. There's not much to say, except that this is about as perfect as recipes come.

1 pound fresh broccoli (sorry, can't use frozen)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground
black pepper
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and drain broccoli. Pat dry. Cut into florets. In a large bowl, toss the broccoli with the oil and salt and pepper to taste. Arrange florets in a single layer on a baking pan and roast, turning once, for 12-15 minutes, or until just tender.

Sprinkle with cheese before serving. If desired, squeeze a few wedges of fresh lemon.
