Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

Prep - 5 mins  Cook - 15 minutes  Ready In - 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, tough ends trimmed
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Spray the inside of a 9x13 casserole dish with olive oil cooking spray. Place asparagus in the dish and lightly spray spears with cooking spray.
  3. Sprinkle asparagus with Parmesan cheese, sea salt, and garlic powder.
  4. Roast in preheated oven until fork easily punctures thickest part of stem, about 12 minutes.

Cook's note:
The best way to keep fresh asparagus for a long while in the refrigerator is to slice off the stems and then stand them in a bowl with a couple of inches of water in the bottom. It keeps for a very long time this way. Add water as necessary.
Tip
Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
