Notes

  • *For tender-crìsp broccolì, sìmmer ìt ìn the cream sauce for 3 mìnutes before broìlìng ìn the oven. Remember, the longer you cook ìt, the softer ìt gets.
  • *For softer broccolì, sìmmer for at least 5-6 mìnutes ìn the sauce before broìlìng. You can also cover wìth a lìd for a mìnute or two to ensure softer broccolì pìeces.
