Broccoli with Parmigiano Reggiano and Pine Nuts

Broccoli with Parmigiano Reggiano and Pine Nuts

Serves 6

This easy, flavorful cooking method for broccoli would work equally well with asparagus or broccoli rabe. Salting the water generously is key to delicious results; the water should taste almost as salty as sea water.

  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fine sea salt
  • Florets from 1 bunch broccoli (about 5 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Combine zest, cheese, pine nuts and pepper in a small bowl. Bring a large pot half full of generously salted water to a boil. Add broccoli and cook just until florets are done to your liking, 2 to 8 minutes; drain and transfer to a platter. Sprinkle with cheese mixture and drizzle with oil. Serve warm or at room temperature.
