Parmesan Roasted Asparagus
Crisp asparagus and sharp parmesan make an easy, simple, yet elegant, side dish! This goes fantastic with grilled steaks, seafood or baked chicken! It’s a perfect side dish for a special occasion steak dinner with someone special You can make this dish many ways… roasted in the oven, grilled, or sauteed on the stove with minced garlic. Good quality parmesan is what really makes this dish yummy! Sometimes I use thick shavings (using the thick side of the cheese grater), rather than the thin shavings of parmesan. Enjoy!
2 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus (about 30 large)
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, freshly grated
1 large Lemon cut in wedges for serving
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Discard woody ends of stalks.
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 15 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Serve hot or warm.
