Roasted Parmesan Asparagus
Super easy and delicious, this side dish is great for a quick family dinner or elegant enough to serve to guests. As a bonus, asparagus is a great source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C and K.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Wash asparagus and cut trip last quarter of asparagus stem (often very tough, stringy and bitter). Usually if you take one asparagus in hand and bend it about a quarter of the way from the bottom, it will naturally snap. Use this guideline from this one to simply cut the rest of the asparagus at the same point.
Arrange the asparagus on the baking pan, drizzle with olive oil and mix to coat evenly. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 25 minutes until asparagus is soft and cheese is melted.
