    I am SO going to make this using some garden broccoli I froze a while back that wasn’t really appetizing as a thawed, heated vegetable. I’ve been looking for an idea to use it with, and this looks like the one. Thank you!

    When did EVOO become a thing? I had to google it to find out that it’s olive oil. I read tons of recipes, most of which are vegetarian, and I never saw EVOO as an ingredient before.

      Diane, I know, it’s pretty lame. It’s a Rachael Ray-ism. She’s not my favorite, but it stuck with me as a lazy, short cut…thanks for the comment. Best, Adrienne
