Try to use only freshly shaved or grated Parmesan cheese for this, it melts and tastes better! Double the recipe if desired.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat, then arrange in a single layer.
  4. Spread the Parmesan cheese over the asparagus, then season with black pepper.

  6. Serve immediately on warm plates, then drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

I used parmesan cheese, grated. Maybe that's why I didn't have a crust on them. But it's ok it was still delicious. Delicious. Thanks Kit :) Made for 123 hit wonders

Great way to make asparagus. Simple and tasty. The balsamic vinegar was a nice touch. Thanks Kitten for another keeper.
