This is a truly easy vegetable side dish.  It takes little preparation and very quick baking time.  Layer the baking dish with aluminum foil for an even quicker cleanup.  I have served this dish many times on a buffet, garnished with lemon slices. 



2 lbs. Fresh Asparagus

2 Tbsp. Olive Oil

1 Tsp. Kosher Salt

1 Tsp. Black Pepper

½ Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated



Wash and trim the asparagus stalks.  I usually snap the bottom off of one stalk, and cut the others to that length.  Place on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for approx. 15 minutes, until the asparagus are tender.  Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese, and return to the oven for approx. 2 minutes, until cheese has melted.  Serve warm.
