Who said kids won't eat broccoli? I can get almost any kid to eat this dish. Roasting leaves it tasting its absolute best. Once you master the roasting technique, play around with flavor options. You can zest a lemon or grate Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese over the top after roasting, or mix in some currants at the end. Yum.

1. Place a large cast-iron skillet in the oven.
2. Preheat oven to 500°.
3. Remove preheated skillet from oven. Add broccoli and oil; stir well. Bake at 500° for 8 minutes, stirring after 6 minutes.
4. Combine broccoli, cheese, and remaining ingredients in a bowl; toss gently. Serve immediately.
Tip: If you're buying whole heads of broccoli, cut off the florets, and then cut the top half of the stems into 1/3-inch coins. Toss them in with the florets to roast. They're delicious!
