Roasted Asparagus

Roasting intensifies the woodsy flavor of asparagus. A thin crust of earthy parmesan cheese adds a bit of crunch. Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes.

F&F spring veg: Roasted Asparagus (0312)

Written by Stephanie Dean
 2 bunches asparagus (about 2 lbs.)
 2 teaspoons olive oil
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
 1/3 cup packed freshly shredded parmesan cheese
 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Step 1

Preheat oven to 475°. Hold the end of an asparagus stalk and bend until it snaps off. Repeat with remaining stalks and discard woody ends.

Step 2

Toss asparagus with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss well. Arrange asparagus in an even layer in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake until asparagus is crisp-tender and cheese is browned, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Serve hot or warm.
