Oven Roasted Asperagus!

Since I am attempting to eat more vegetables, I am sharing my very favorite vegetable of all.  Oven roasted fresh asparagus.

Take a fresh bundle of asparagus and wash and dry on a clean towel or paper towels.
 Break or cut off the bottoms of each spear.  I like to break them because they seem to break just at the right spot.


Spread out in a single layer on a good heavy sheet pan.

Season with kosher or sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste.  I know, I like a lot of pepper!! Drizzle EVOO, extra virgin olive oil and with clean hands toss right on the pan to coat with the seasoning and oil.

Roast in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for about 15 -20 minutes depending on your taste.  I love mine with a little crunch and very green.

 Remove from the oven and sprinkle fresh grated Parmesan cheese. 
Eat immediately.  It is so tasty and pretty too!  If there is any left, I eat it as a snack.
Enjoy!

  2. We do the same thing except we haven't tried the cheese on it. We do our broccoli and brussel sprouts this way too.

  22. Hi Ginger, I think I would love this way of cooking asparagus rather than steaming or boiling. Next time it's available in my local store I think I will try your way. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
