Recipe: Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese

Roasted Asparagus on White Platter with Parmesan Cheese from Walking on Sunshine FEATURED

Today I'm sharing with you one of the easiest recipes that will make a huge presentation for any meal you are serving for your family or for guests.

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese is so easy to make!  My husband and I love this recipe and enjoy asparagus often as a side dish to our meal.  We love it with grilled chicken or grilled steak.  
Roasting asparagus changes the flavor of asparagus.  It actually takes out some of the natural bitterness when you cook asparagus.  For best results you want to use thick stalks when roasting.

I used to drizzle the asparagus with oil but now I use the Kitchen Spritz tool from Pampered Chef.  I use this to spritz or spray all my vegetables before roasting.  It works great and is a healthy way to add a light coat of oil to vegetables, salads, meats and will prevent food from sticking to your pans.

Check out this video on how easy the Kitchen Spritz tool is to use!

  • How to Trim Asparagus

Trim the asparagus by cutting off the bottom thick pieces.  I like to pick up one stalk and holding it between two hands slightly bend it and then allow it to break naturally.  Then I use that one stalk as my guide to cutting the rest of the asparagus.

Don't forget the salt and pepper!  I like to use sea salt or kosher salt when roasting vegetables
