Family Fun & Healthy Recipe #1
Roasted Asparagus with Lemon & Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 pounds Asparagus
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Zest of 1/2 Lemon (about 1 tbsp)
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
1/3 cup fresh grated Parmesan
2 tsp Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven 400 ° and wash asparagus and let drain.
Prep asparagus - Place the asparagus on your cutting board and cut the tough woody portion off. The stem thickness indicates the age of the asparagus, thicker stems coming from older plants. The stalks are thicker and can be a little woody then the small stalks. The bottom portion of asparagus often contains sand and dirt, so thorough cleaning is advised before cooking.
Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up. Add olive oil to the pan then add your asparagus, minced garlic, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Then toss asparagus and make sure all the stalks are cover. Now add lemon juice and zest. Place in oven and let roast for about 10 - 12 minutes.
Serve asparagus - Remove oven and place on serving plate while they nice and hot, sprinkle grated parmesan cheese. Love my asparagus roasted this way because they are full of flavor.
