Cooking instructions

1. Wash, clean and cut the broccoli into florets and let them boil in water for about 3 minutes.

2. Place them in a colander and pass them under cold water to cool them and stop the cooking.

3. In a pan, pour the Benvolio Extravirgin Olive Oil and fry the garlic previously crushed over low heat for a few minutes.

4. At this point, put the broccoli in a bowl and mix them with the fried mixture, stirring slowly in order not to break them.

5. Put the broccoli onto a baking tray covered with baking paper and sprinkle the grated Parmesan on them.

6. Turn the oven to grill mode and cook au gratin for 3-5 minutes, or until the surface is golden and crispy. Take the broccoli out of the oven and serve them warm.
