Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

My mom grew up on an asparagus farm and has always had an affinity towards asparagus as a side dish. My dad, on the other hand, has a general rule about not eating any green vegetables. How to please them both? Serve roasted asparagus with an garlic olive oil and parmesan cheese. Pleases even the fussiest pallets and takes your side up a notch. 

  • 1 bunch asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp grated parmesan 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic, sea salt and pepper together
  • On a baking sheet, lay out the asparagus in a single layer and brush with the olive oil mixture to coat and sprinkle parmesan cheese over top
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until tender, depending on thickness
  • Serve hot
