Jessie Sarrazin of Livingston, Montana shares her oh-so-easy side dish that goes great with almost any entrée. Use less basil for a subtle flavor, and more for a stronger Italian taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium bunch broccoli (1-1/2 pounds), cut into spears
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring broccoli and broth to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-8 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute onion and garlic in butter until tender. Stir in basil and pepper. Drain broccoli and place in a serving bowl; add onion mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
