Roasted Asparagus

 

One of the simplest and most delicious side dishes is roasted asparagus. Simply toss with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and roast until bright green and so that each spear has a little crunch left.

Want to fancy up the dish a little, sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese over the asparagus as soon as it comes out of the oven. It melts and the salty, nutty flavors are a tasty delight.

Another simple topping is grated lemon peel. Sprinkle over the top of the hot asparagus to release the essential oils in the lemon. Spectacular!
