"The Best Broccoli Ever!"

Okay I am not a vegetable person and the only time I eat broccoli is in broccoli/cheese soups or casseroles but this recipe makes it good enough to eat all by itself! I found this recipe on a blog and it was too delicious not to share! Do yourself a favor and try it! Enjoy and share :)
