Rated as 4.16 out of 5 Stars

"I started using this recipe in 1987, when I began cooking light...it's been a favorite side dish ever since. With its lemon and Parmesan flavors, it once took second-place in a cooking contest. --Alice Nulle of Woodstock, Illinois"

The flavor was great, but I ran into a few problems. I needed more liquid to coat the broccoli, so I drizzled on a little extra olive oil. Most of the parmesan fell off and burned on the grill...
