Baked Broccoli Parmesan
By Ro Morse
PADUCAH, KY - SuperValu Foods Recipe of the Week - Serves 4
I bunch fresh broccoli, barely cooked in lightly salted water (save liquid)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large cloved garlic, minced
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 small can tomato paste
1 cup broccoli liquid
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Cook the broccoli in salted water for about three to four minutes. Remove the broccoli and save the liquid. Cut the barely cooked broccoli in long thin spears.
In a skillet, saute the garlic in olive oil for about two minutes. Add sliced mushrooms, stirring for another four to five minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms, stirring until well blended. Add the tomato paste and broccoli liquid- keep stirring. The flour will start to absorb the liquid. Add seasonings. Stir in 1/4 cup of Parmesan. Butter a pie plate and place broccoli spears in, pouring the sauce over the top. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the cheese bubbles. Very tasty!
