Super-Simple Garlic Broccoli

My kids love broccoli, especially with lots of garlic. It’s great for a special occasion, but it’s so quick that I usually fix it once a week in our home. Everyone gobbles it up. —Caramia Sommers, Oswego, New York

    Much better than just microwaving frozen broccoli. Nice garlic flavor.
