Roasted Parmesan Asparagus Recipe

Roasted Parmesan Asparagus

Easter is coming and we are looking for delicious recipes to serve our friends and family. These roasted asparagus are quick to prepare and they add a nice, colorful touch to your plate. Top them with Parmesan Shaved Cheese to add a savory component to these tender asparagus. They can be ready in less than 20 minutes in the oven. It is my favorite way to cook fresh asparagus; you should give it a try!

This side dish took me only 5 minutes to prepare. Don’t we all like those recipes that do not make us spend hours in the kitchen? My kids loved this dish and we did not have any leftovers. They said that the addition of Parmesan cheese makes it hard to resist these delicious roasted asparagus. This healthy recipe is now one of our favorites!

As a cheese lover I crave cheese constantly. I always find a way to include cheese in my cooking and baking.  Cheese will turn a bland dish into a flavorful meal. Often something as simple as sprinkling a small amount of cheese on top of pasta will uplift this dish.  Try making Creamy Taco Unstuffed Shells made with Creamy Mexicana Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia.
