Parmesan Crusted Roasted Asparagus
Roasting asparagus transforms this vegetable into a level of flavor that has a "nutty" layer of deliciousness. Adding a lot of freshly grated Parmesan takes this roasted side dish to a whole new level. It's simple, and it's so good!

Prepare the asparagus by trimming off the woody ends. Sprinkle with kosher salt (not table salt) and fresh cracked pepper.
Drizzle with olive oil (about 1 tablespoon). Mix together.
On a Silpat Silicon Mat, or foil, or parchment paper (cleanup is easier this way) generously grate a thick layer of freshly grated Parmesan cheese (not the stuff in the green can... that is really cheap).
Bake at 425°F for about 10 minutes. Allow to sit for a minute and serve.
