Garlic Parmesan asparagus

1 bunch thin asparagus, trimmed

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. grated Parmesan

1 tsp. minced garlic

¼ tsp. pepper

¼ tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. The proper way to trim asparagus is to hold it by each end and bend; where it breaks is the best part of the veggie, discard the bottom pieces. It usually breaks a couple inches from the bottom. After trimming, lay across a foil-lined pan sprayed with non-stick spray, in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with the rest of the ingredients and toss carefully. Make sure you bake in a single layer. About 15 minutes.

  1. Asparagus and brussel sprouts are some of the side dishes that we use (and tend to get some looks for). They pair perfectly with parmesan, so I’m sure that these recipes will really help somebody.

  2. I love the mix you used on the Brussel Sprouts and Asparagus for all kinds of vegetables!! Some of my favorite go-to items — parmesan, garlic and olive oil 🙂
