Broccoli and Cauliflower

Preheat oven to 400°. Heat olive oil in 12-inch oven-proof sauté pan over medium-high heat to smoking point. Add broccoli and cauliflower crowns and sauté until light brown on one side. Add salt, pepper, oregano, and sliced garlic. Stir well and transfer pan to preheated oven.
