Broccoli with Garlic Butter Sauce

Who loves broccoli, well just about everyone I grew up with.  I have three sisters, and my mom tells people this story all the time.  We used to fight over broccoli and get mad when we thought someone was taking more than their fair share.  Needless to say, I still love broccoli and eat it often.  Mr.Picky well lets just say is not fond, and can’t even handle when I cook it.  So I was on a mission to find a recipe he would at least try.  This was the results, after I modified a recipe off of  Garlic is our friend and even the kids love broccoli this way.
