Ingredients:

(1) bunch asparagus spears, trimmed
3 tbsp olive oil
(4) garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
salt/pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Place asparagus on baking pan edges.

2. Pour olive oil uniformly over the top and thoroughly toss to cover.

3. Sprinkle on top of coated asparagus with the garlic, parmesan, salt, and pepper.

4. Place the pan in a 425 degree preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes, or until the fork-tender.

5. Remove from the oven and serve. Enjoy it!

Tip:

1. Do not freeze asparagus because it won’t remain firm once it thaws. Keep roasted parmesan garlic asparagus ready for the leftovers by storing it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

2. Try to grill asparagus before adding the cheese and broiling for a smoky flavor.

3. Try it out as unique quinoa or rice topping, especially at the office.

4. Serve with roasted chicken breast or stroganoff beef for a meal that everyone will love.

5. Crockpot pork tenderloin with roasted asparagus always goes well.

6. I like using freshly grated Parmesan cheese as the taste is fantastic out of this world.
