Ingredients
  

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 head broccoli cut into small florets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2-3 slices provolone cheese
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts toasted

Instructions
 

  • Bring to a boil a pot of water with 1 tsp of salt. Drop the broccoli into the water and cook for 1 minute. Strain the broccoli straight into a hot sauté pan. Move the broccoli around the pan for 5 minutes, until you can see no water in the pan and little steam is coming off the broccoli. We want the broccoli to be dry. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil into the pan. Cook for 2 minutes. Add garlic and black pepper along with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Cook for 1 minute then transfer into an oven safe casserole dish.
  • Layer the broccoli with provolone cheese. Place into oven at 300°F, just until the cheese is melted. Top with pine nuts and serve!
