Yummy Yummy Broccoli!

I made this for MIL's birthday dinner and just had to post because it is so good and so easy. I originally got the recipe from Publix (Apron's) but I changed the cheese and the amount of cheese as well as a little of the cooking technique.

Sicilian Broccoli
1 (14-ounce) bag frozen broccoli florets
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup pre-diced red onions
2 teaspoons chopped garlic (2 cloves)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2-3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1. Fill medium saucepan half full of water. Cover and bring to a boil on high for broccoli.

2. Stir broccoli into boiling water. Boil 3–4 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until desired tenderness. Drain broccoli thoroughly.

3. Return saucepan to stove; reduce to medium-high. Place olive oil in pan; swirl to coat. Add onions cook 2–3 minutes then add garlic and cook about 1 minute watching carefully to make sure that the garlic does not burn.

4. Stir in broccoli until coated with oil. Cook 3–4 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until flavors are well blended. Season with salt and pepper; grate cheese over broccoli and serve.
