Roasted Broccoli (w/optional garlic)

From America's Test Kitchen

Even if you don't like broccoli, this recipe is worth a try...delicious!!

Servings: 4

1 large head of broccoli (1 3/4 lbs)
3 T. olive oil
1/2 tsp. table salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
Ground black pepper
Lemon wedges for serving
*optional garlic to taste

1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position, place large rimmed baking sheet on rack and heat oven to 500 degrees. Cut broccoli into large pieces, remove outer peel from stalk. Cut stalk into 2-3 inch lengths and 1/2 inch pieces. Place broccoli in large bowl; drizzle with olive oil and toss until well coated. Sprinkle with salt, sugar, and pepper and toss to combine 
2. Working quickly, remove baking sheet from oven. Carefully transfer broccoli to baking sheet and spread into an even layer, placing flat sides down. Return baking sheet to oven and roast until lightly browned (9-11 minutes). Serve immediately with lemon wedges. 

* If you would like to use the optional garlic, mix minced garlic with the olive oil prior to drizzling oil over broccoli.
