  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 Tbs. good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 oz. freshly shaved Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  2. Rinse asparagus and pat dry. Snap off bottoms. The bottom should snap off naturally.
  3. 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.
  4. Transfer to a serving dish. Top with shaved Parmesan cheese (I used a microplane grater).
  5. Serve hot.
