Roasting asparagus is my favorite way to prepare this delicious veggie and the bread crumb/parmesan topping was a wonderful addition. DH really enjoyed this dish too and I will definitely be making it again. Made for What's on the Menu tag, October, 2014. : )
Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe gailanng, it was really quick and easy to make with terrific results . We really enjoyed the flavors from the breadcrumbs and freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese, it really adds a nice element to the dish. The asparagus were perfectly cooked. Made for Whats on the Menu tag game.
Layering the asparagus spears as suggested and keeping a close eye on the time yielded perfectly bright green but cooked spears. I was able to then leave at room temp with a very loosely fitted steamer lid and finish the crumb topping under broiler 2 hours later. Woohoo- freed me up to socialize with my dinner guests and still created a positive impression when they saw the veggies.
