Broccoli Casalinghi

One more recipe from Ciao Italia, by Mary Ann Esposito.

--1 bunch Broccoli
--1/4 cup Olive Oil
--2 cloves Garlic, chopped
--1 and 1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
--1/4 cup Water
--Salt and Fresh-Ground Black Pepper to taste
--1/4 cup shredded or grated Parmesan or Romano Cheese

Clean and cut up the broccoli. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until it begins to soften. Add the red pepper flakes and cook for 1 minute. Add the broccoli and toss to coat with oil. Cook for 2 more minutes, then reduce heat to medium low. Cover and cook for 3 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the water and cover again. Cook for about 6 minutes until broccoli is crisp-tender, adding more water if necessary. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper and toss with cheese.
