Roasted Parmesan Asparagus

Posted on

This is a very easy, but elegant, side dish that would really add some spark to your Christmas dinner – in fact; I intend to make this to go alongside my applewood-smoked   prime rib for our pre-Christmas feast when our friend Pam arrives later this month.  It’s really very basic, no   weird ingredients, and done entirely in the oven.

Give it a try and see if your family goes for it (of course, if you have an asparagus-hater in the house, nothing you make that involves asparagus will change that.)

1 bunch Asparagus
¼ cup Extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbs Fresh lemon juice
6 cloves Garlic
1 tsp Dried Italian seasoning
¾ tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp Cracked pepper
¼ cup Shredded parmesan cheese
Prepare asparagus by cutting off the fibrous lower portion of each stalk, leaving the more tender spears.  Peel and finely mince garlic cloves.  Preheat oven to 425° F.

Combine garlic, olive oil, Italian seasoning and lemon juice in a dish or mixing bowl.  Toss asparagus spears in olive oil mixture; arrange asparagus spears in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment.  Evenly sprinkle on salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese.

Roast for 10-12 minutes, or until asparagus is just tender.

I believe that my unique combination of education, ability and experience would be a real asset to your company, in any capacity that… Wait a minute – this isn’t a résumé, it’s a profile – I’m sorry, I was confused for a moment. In that case, I’ll just say that I live in the beautiful desert Southwest, I’m extremely happily married, I have everything I need and almost everything I want. Is that good enough? And one more thing… I probably wouldn’t be much of an asset to your company.
