Lemon Parmesan Roasted Broccoli

I originally saw the concept for the recipe on Pintrest called "The Best Broccoli of Your Life".  As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to try making it. I made a few modifications to the original (I used less oil, roasted the parmesan and the broccoli together, and used almonds instead of pine nuts) but used the same flavour combination.  I gotta say, this turned out so well I can see it making it's way onto my plate more often!  This would be such a great way to get kids to eat their veggies! 
Ingredients
- 2 heads of broccoli
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1-2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- salt and pepper to taste
Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  
Wash broccoli and pat dry.  Chop into medium sized pieces and place on a baking sheet.  Mince garlic and toss with broccoli, along with olive oil.  
Cook for 10-15 minutes until the broccoli is bright green.  Toss with fresh lemon juice, parmesan cheese and almonds - cook until cheese has browned, another 5-10 minutes.  
Season with salt and pepper.
