Parmesan Ranch Broccoli

Honey and I like our vegetables well done so I used frozen broccoli instead of fresh and we loved it, so easy and super fast.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Family Size bag frozen Broccoli Florets if you want well done but if you desired crisp broccoli use 6 to 7 cups of fresh, stems removed
  • 2 teaspoons dry Ranch dressing mix
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan

Instructions:

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Melt butter in the skillet, then add broccoli. Stir to coat and cook for about 4 minutes, until broccoli starts to soften but still has a crisp bite to it.
  3. Sprinkle Ranch mix over broccoli. Add about 2-3 tablespoons of water and stir to coat broccoli completely. Cook for about a minute. If you prefer broccoli to be very soft, cook a couple of minutes longer.
  4. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over broccoli and serve hot.
