Cook: 15 mins
Total: 20 mins
Yield: 4 servings
olive oil cooking spray
1 pound fresh asparagus, tough ends trimmed
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Step 2: Spray the inside of a 9×13 casserole dish with olive oil cooking spray. Place asparagus in the dish and lightly spray spears with cooking spray.
Step 3: Sprinkle asparagus with Parmesan cheese, sea salt, and garlic powder.
Step 4: Roast in preheated oven until fork easily punctures thickest part of stem, about 12 minutes.
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.
