I like recipes that are simple and tasty. This roasted asparagus recipe from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food is just the kind of thing I look for.
2 bunches of fresh asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
Coarse sea salt and ground pepper to taste
¼ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Trim tough ends from asparagus. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss asparagus with olive oil. Season with coarse salt and pepper. Spread asparagus in an even layer. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Roast until asparagus is tender and cheese is melted. 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
