Don't you love when a good friend is visiting? This weekend my best friend from childhood came to Brooklyn and stayed with me - it was awesome! She and her husband are leaving in two weeks to hike the entire Appalachian Trail (wish them luck!) and I wanted to spend as much time with her as possible since I won't see her for a good 7-8 months. This included wanting to cook her some awesome food without having to focus on the cooking too much.
So I made this amazing broccoli dish! It involves minimal prep. Cooking = simply pop in the oven. It is such a pleasant combination of flavors! The earthiness of the broccoli, the saltiness of the pecorino, the smokiness of the bacon...all brought together by the deep tones of extra virgin olive oil.
This is the perfect side dish for a winter night's meal. It would go great with fish or chicken! It's also fine for a small midday meal on it's own. Now that I've made this I definitely see myself making it way more often. It was so easy and delicious there is really no reason for it to not become a staple in my meal rotation! Now you go make this and tell me you don't feel the same...

I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
