Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 7 1/2 minutes
Cook broccoli in a large pot of boiling salted water for 4 minutes, until bright green and crisp-tender. Drain in a colander, return to pot, cover, and keep warm.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil, garlic, salt, and red pepper in a large skillet over medium-high heat, 1 minute, until garlic begins to sizzle. Stir in breadcrumbs, increase the heat to medium, and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 1/2 minutes, until crumbs are lightly toasted.
Transfer the broccoli to a serving bowl, add the crumb mixture and Parmesan, and toss until the broccoli is evenly coated. Serve hot.
Can someone explain to me how you can heat olive oil, etc. over med-high heat for a minute and then "increase the heat to medium"?
