How To Make my italian broccoli bake

    Preheat oven to 400 degree F. In a large skillet add oil, onion, garlic powder, salt & pepper and broccoli florets. Over med heat saute until onions are browning and broccoli starts to brown a little. ( about 5 minutes )

    Stir sugar into tomatoes, mellows any bitterness. In a 1 - 1 1/2 quart casserole dish, ( I used a deep dish pie plate ) add the broccoli mixture, tomatoes - stir just a bit.

    Add the cheese - cover with foil and bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until broccoli is tender. You can take the foil off and brown the last 5 minutes if that's what you prefer.
