Simple roasted asparagus topped with a generous sprinkle of freshly shaved Parmesan cheese – it’s a side that’s delicious for brunch, lunch, or dinner.
1Tbs.good quality extra virgin olive oil
1/4tsp.freshly ground black pepper
1oz.freshly shaved Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
Rinse asparagus and pat dry. Snap off bottoms. The bottom should snap off naturally.
Toss asparagus with olive oil, salt, and pepper, adding more if needed. Spread out in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, until asparagus are cooked to desired degree of doneness.
Transfer to a serving dish. Top with shaved Parmesan cheese (I used a microplane grater).
