Method

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place broccoli florets on a rimmed sheet pan and toss with garlic, 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange seasoned broccoli in an even layer on the sheet pan so each floret is making direct contact with the pan. Roast in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until broccoli is crisp and some of the tips are browned. Remove from oven and immediately toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, and parmesan.
