I love vegetables. I could eat them all day and with every meal if I had the time to prepare them. I know, that sounds like the craziest statement ever. I mean, who goes around declaring their love for vegetables as if it’s the same as iced coffee, pizza, or chocolate cake?! Well, maybe I should be a little more specific. I love roasted vegetables.

There is just something magical that happens to vegetables when you pop them in the oven and roast them. Roasting brings out the natural sweetness in veggies, cuts out the bitterness, and automatically makes them 100 times more delicious.
Garlic and parmesan are two of my favorite ingredients to add to just about any kind of savory recipe, so tossing them in with my asparagus was a no-brainer. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper, then spritz with some olive oil and you are good to go.
I prepare my roasted asparagus on the same cookie sheet that it bakes on. I can’t stand extra dishes to wash, so if a recipe allows a short-cut, I go for it! Just mix everything together on top of the aluminum foil lined pan then spread it out and bake for about 8 minutes. I don’t like to go any longer than that because then the asparagus gets too soft for my liking. I like it to be a little bit crisp and not mushy.
