Need a quick side dish idea? How about Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese?
1 bunch thin asparagus spears, trimmed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears, and then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving.
