Parmessan Roasted Asparagus

By My Golden Years

  • 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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
