Roasted Parmesan Asparagus Recipe

Easy to make and it makes asparagus tasty. We had this with steak and it made for a great meal.” – Vettech9902

Asparagus is delicious on its own but add in some parmesan and you'll really bring a new taste dimension to this crunchy green veggie. Parmesan cheese thoroughly enhances the flavor of asparagus and offers a creamy taste as a nice counterpoint to its natural crispness.

This will only take a maximum of 10 minutes to prepare and preparation is a  simple affair as you just clean up the asparagus and mix the ingredients in a bowl (without the parmesan cheese). Then it's just a matter of roasting it for 10 minutes, bringing it out, using the cheese to coat your asparagus then popping it back in the oven for 5-10 minutes more or until it's cooked and still offers a crunch to the bite.
