Badass Broccoli Recipe With Creamy Parmesan Sauce: This Broccoli Recipe Will Make You Forget About the Main Dish

A local Italian restaurant in my small town makes the most amazing broccoli recipe. They call it broccoli al vapore with cream sauce. I call it so good I almost forget to eat my manicotti. This is a close version of their amazing recipe that I treat myself to at home. Now I just need their manicotti with pink sauce recipe...

Cuisine: American/Italian
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 3 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more the top
  • pinch of nutmeg

Here's how to make it:

  1. Steam the broccoli about 5 to 6 minutes or until crisp tender.
  2. In a saucepot, whisk together the flour and milk until smooth. Cook over medium-low heat until thickened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Put the broccoli into a shallow baking dish or individual serving dishes. Spoon the Parmesan sauce over the broccoli. Pop under the broiler for about 1 minute just to get a very light brown. Sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese.
