I tried roasting asparagus for the first time a couple of years ago and it turned out so delicious. I was getting tired of the same old butter and salt for flavor. This is a yummy way to give some more flavor to the veggies you serve. And the best part is that it is quick and easy. Well the best part may be that you won’t have to bribe your kids to eat their veggies! My kids absolutely love this! You can do it with cauliflower, peppers, broccoli, and of course, asparagus.
- 30 or so spears of fresh asparagus
- ½ tsp. Kosher salt
- 2 T. olive oil
- ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- ½ c. grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Wash and trim asparagus. Lay them in a single layer on a 11×17 rimmed cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 12 minutes, until tender. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and return to the oven for one more minute. Serve hot!
