Parmesan Roasted Asparagus
2 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus (about 30 Large)
2 Tablespoons Arbequina Extra-Virgin or Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Wash the asparagus and cut off the tough ends. Lay them in a single layer on a sheet pan and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and return to the oven for another minute (or broil for 30 seconds to 1 minute to brown the Parmesan).
