Roasted Asparagus Recipe

This classic roasted asparagus side dish was a favorite in my family, and I’m sure it will become one in yours. Not only is it incredibly easy to prepare, its simplicity is what makes it so special. The tender tips become golden and crispy in a matter of minutes, and the salty bite of the Parmesan adds just the right amount of richness.

Yields 2 generous servings

1 bunch asparagus, woody ends removed
1 tablespoon olive oil
Parmesan cheese (Parmigiano-Reggiano is ideal)
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 450 F.

In large bowl, toss asparagus in olive oil to coat. Place on baking sheet and roast in oven until just starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and top with generous portion of Parmesan; season with salt and pepper as desired. Since Parmesan is a rather salty cheese, go light on additional salt. You can always add more at the end.
