Roasted Asparagus

This was one of the side dishes from last weeks dinner, and was also very and economical to feed a crowd.  I got a 2.25 pound bag at Costco for about $6.  You have to do very little prep work to the asparagus, so it’s perfect for a dinner party.

Asparagus (figure on 4-5 spears per person)

Olive Oil

Garlic Cloves

Salt

Pepper

Parmesan Cheese

Wash the asparagus and prep by taking the stalk firmly in your hands and snap at the lower end.  The asparagus naturally snaps at the point that should be discarded.  You can normally just use where it snaps as a guideline and cut the remaining spears around the same place.  I like snapping, so I just do them all that way!

Line a jelly roll pan with foil and arrange the spears in a single layer.  Drizzle with olive oil and season with the salt and pepper.  Crush garlic cloves with the side of your knife and arrange around the asparagus.  Roast at 400 degrees in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until they appear a bit wilted and are tender.  Place on your serving dish and sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese.

About Hang Onto Your Fork

I am just a girl who loves to cook. I am happiest when friends and/ or family are sitting around my table enjoying a meal and sharing stories and laughter! I noticed myself spending a lot of time reading recipe sites, food blogs and cook books and finally decided to get in on the action! I am very much an amateur cook, and through the last couple of years have learned a lot through trial and error. So, I would like to invite you to join in my culinary triumphs and laugh at my kitchen disasters! I welcome any tips/ advice/ and comments that you may have!
