Roasted Broccoli with Lemon Garlic Butter and Pine Nuts

1 lb broccoli florets
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
1 to 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp pine nuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

In a large bowl, toss the broccoli with the oil and salt and pepper to taste. Arrange the florets in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast, turning once, for 12 minutes, or until just tender.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and lemon zest and heat, stirring, for about 1 minute. Let cool slightly and stir in the lemon juice. Place the broccoli in a serving bowl, pour the lemon butter over it and toss to coat. Scatter the toasted pine nuts over the top.
