Asparagus Parmesan


I love asparagus! Growing up in the salad bowl of California (Salinas Valley), I grew up eating an abundance of fresh vegetables. My family's dairy was surrounded by agricultural fields. Needless to say there was a vegetable of some sort on our dinner table every night! Now living in Colorado, when the water hits the ditch, I'm out walking in the fields picking the wild asparagus that pops up in the warm summer months! So nice having it all summer long. This recipe is a delicious way to change asparagus up and bring it to a new level of great flavor! I mean.. hello... there's cheese and butter on it... you can't go wrong there! So set your oven to 375 degrees and let's do this! Cheers! 

Yummy Goodness!

Asparagus Parmesan

1 pound of Asparagus
2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Parmesan
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter 

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Wash and prep your asparagus by cutting 1-2 inches off the bottom. Drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet and lay asparagus in pan. Sprinkle spices starting with parmesan then garlic powder, salt & pepper. Drizzle melted butter evenly over everything. Place in oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden. Baking times depend on size of stems.

*You can use canned parmesan or even better fresh grated parmesan & romano mixed as a delicious combination.*
