Asparagus with Lemon & Parmnesan Cheese

Submitted by: SHELBSYD

Introduction

My friend told me to cook my Asparagus this way, she said it is the best! I have to agree with her! So simple, yet so tasty. My friend told me to cook my Asparagus this way, she said it is the best! I have to agree with her! So simple, yet so tasty.

Ingredients

    1 bundle of Asparagus
    1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
    1 Clove of Garlic Minced
    Sprinkle of salt
    Dash of Pepper
    1 Lemon
    1 Tbsp. of Parm Cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 400

Take the Asparagus, hold by the end and snap off. The Asparagus will snap automatically where it is not tender, no need for a knife here!

Dump asparagus spears on baking tray

Drizzle with plenty of olive oil

Toss asparagus spears to coat in olive oil

Spread them out on baking tray evenly

Sprinkle sea salt (or kosher salt) on asparagus

Grind pepper over aspargus

Sprinkle bits of chopped garlic over asparagus

Stick in the oven and cook for about 10-15 minutes


Usually let them cook until the asparagus is sizzling in the oil and there's a bit of browning. If you like yours a little crisper, you can take them out after they've turned bright green.

Once they are out of the oven, you can squeeze some lemon on them or shred some parmesan cheese over them or sprinkled some balsamic vinegraite or caesar dressing, if you prefer.
