Our pasta nights always feature a big serving of vegetables on the side. When the weather cools down you might not feel like a salad, so a delicious plate of roasted broccoli is a perfect choice.

Ingredients

2 heads of broccoli

4 tbsp olive oil

1 bird's eye chilli, sliced

4 cloves garlic, peeled and lightly crushed

salt and black pepper, to season

2 tbsp finely grated parmesan

Method

1. Heat your oven to 220C.

2. Toss the broccoli in the oil, chilli and garlic and season well with salt and black pepper.

3. Spread out in a single layer on a lined baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the broccoli is charred and tender.

4. Transfer to a plate and scatter with the parmesan. (You can also bake the broccoli with the parmesan if you prefer.)
