Hints & Tips
This is my favorite way to prepare and serve fresh Spring asparagus. It is so simple and so good!
It smells like you have a pizza in your oven. My grade-school-age grandsons love
this asparagus! They always ask me to make my asparagus for them. So, this is a kid friendly recipe!

Roasted Asparagus Parmigiano Recipe
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
asparagus stalks, washed and trimmed
1 tablespoon extra-virgin
1 tablespoon white or red
garlic cloves, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon ground herbs de Provence
salt or sea salt
Coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 cup or more grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Lemons wedges for garnish
Snap or cut off the tough ends of the asparagus.
Arrange asparagus in a single layer in a shallow baking pan.
Make marinade by combining olive oil, wine, balsamic vinegar, garlic, herbs de
Provence, salt, and pepper. Pour marinade over asparagus, turning to coat. Let marinate for 2 to 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. When ready to bake, sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano
cheese over the top of the asparagus. Bake approximately 8 to 10 minutes
(depending on thickness of the asparagus stalks) or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and transfer asparagus to a serving
platter. Garnish with lemon wedges.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
