Common Mistakes

– Not preheating the oven: This will result in the broccoli not cooking evenly. Be sure to preheat the oven before getting started.

– Overcrowding the baking sheet: If the broccoli is too close together on the baking sheet, it will steam instead of roast. Make sure the broccoli is spread out in a single layer.

– Not using enough cheese: This recipe is meant to be cheesy, so don’t be shy with the Parmesan cheese!
