Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

2 bunches (1 1/2 pounds) asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Trim the tough ends from the asparagus. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the asparagus with the olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Roast until the asparagus is tender and the cheese is melted, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
