Pizza-Style Broccoli

I saw this in USA Weekend--a normally useless publication, but this is delicious and a nice change.  It's by Daphne Oz, from her new cookbook Relish.

Pizza-Style Broccoli

1 head broccoli, cut in florets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon dried red chile flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper

Steam or boil broccoli until barely tender.  Drain well.

Preheat broiler.  Put broccoli in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with cheese, chile flakes, and oregano.  Broil for 2 or 3 minutes, or until cheese is golden.

Squeeze lemon juice over, salt and pepper to taste, and serve at once.

I make something similar to this, but starting with breaking up a few anchovies in some olive oil in a pan. Delicious. I think it came from that Viana La Place book you got me?
