Roasted Broccoli with Buttered Walnuts

Roasted Broccoli with Buttered Walnuts from The Best of Southern Living Cookbook (pg. 249) chosen by Phillip at Come Rain or Come Shine

3 lbs. fresh broccoli (about 2 bunches)
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup walnut halves
3 tbsp. butter, melted
1 lemon, halved

1.  Cut broccoli into 3-inch lengths; cut thick pieces in half lengthwise.  Place in a roasting pan, and drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat well.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast at 500 degrees for 14 minutes, stirring once after 8 minutes.

2.  Meanwhile, toast walnuts in melted butter in a skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until fragrant.

3.  Spoon broccoli into a serving bowl.  Squeeze cut lemon over broccoli, tossing well.  Stir in walnuts and butter.
