This is one of my favorite dishes to make when having company over. It pairs well with many meats and is fairly simple to make. I am also a huge broccoli lover and this heats up well as a leftover. It also freezes well. You could even make ahead of time and then freeze. Check out our Freezer Cooking Series.
