1 pound asparagus, trimmed, cut into thirds.
1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) grated Parmesan Cheese.
2 teaspoons olive oil, preferably extra virgin.
Pinch of salt
Ground black pepper
4 Lemon wedges or white wine vinegar
Preheat the oven to 425F. In a baking pan large enough to hold the asparagus in a single layer, combine the asparagus, cheese, oil, and salt. Toss to coat the asparagus evenly.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender (time will vary depending upon the thickness of the asparagus). Season to taste with pepper. Serve with lemon wedges or splash with white wine vinegar.
