Really lovely! Cooked the broccoli in a lidded dish in the microwave for 2 minutes along with some green beans, dried well, then did exactly as recipe. A keeper! Served with lamb and champ mash.

Nice and easy, nice and tasty, would never have paired them together before but might not have plain old boring broccoli again!

I wasn't sure about this... didn't really like the idea of frying the cooked broccoli in butter - but it was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be making again, and will make a point of topping broccoli with parmesan (with or without the butter) in future as the combination works so well.
