Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

Parmesan Roasted Asparagus |

Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables and for me the best way to serve them is roasted. Roasting gives these asparagus spears a distinct, deeper flavor. A sprinkle of  salt and pepper is actually enough to make this dish delicious. But let’s go over the top today and throw in some garlic flavor and parmesan cheese – yummy yummy yummy! It is quite addicting, you know. For a stretch of time, my husband and I have paired this with baked salmon, steak, fish, and even pasta.
