Source:  Everyday Food magazine, October 2011  

2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 head broccoli, trimmed and cut into florets
1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
1/4 - 1/2 t. red pepper flakes
coarse salt
ground pepper
2 t. finely grated lemon zest
1 T. fresh lemon juice
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. chopped toasted walnuts

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat.  Add broccoli and cook until broccoli begins to brown, about 4 minutes.  Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is crisp-tender and garlic begins to brown, about 3 minutes.  Add red pepper flakes, season with salt and pepper, and transfer to a serving bowl.  Toss with lemon zest, lemon juice, Parmesan and walnuts.  Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serves 4
