- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Break off the end of each asparagus spear. You can also, simply cut off the thicker, woody end of the spears.
- Now first, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spread out the spears in an even layer and sprinkle the olive oil, parmesan, salt and pepper over the layer. Using your hands or tongs gently mix the spears with the ingredients until well coated.
- The oven should be preheated now. Place the asparagus in the oven and cook until the cheese begins to brown. This should take 8-10 minutes. If you like them a little softer you can add a couple of minutes, just be sure not to burn the cheese.
While simple, this recipe can be vamped up. Try adding some garlic to make these spears pop with flavor. Adding a light squeeze of lemon can elevate this dish to the next level.
