The year is almost half over and I’ve stalled on my Veggie Resolution.  You know what that means – time for another veggie recipe!  This time I’m featuring one of my favorite vegetables – asparagus, which is plentiful in the summer!  This recipe is simple, quick and delicious.

You will need:


1 lb asparagus 1 tbsp olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced Juice of 1 lemon Salt, to taste

3 tbsp Parmesan cheese shavings

1. Preheat oven to 450F.  Meanwhile, prepare asparagus by breaking off the rough ends.  They should break naturally at the perfect point – easy peasy!


2. This step is optional, but I like peeling the ends of each stalk as well – it makes for a more tender veggie.


3. Place asparagus in shallow baking dish and toss with olive oil, minced garlic and lemon juice.   Season with salt.


4. Bake 7-8 minutes, until stalks are tender and slightly browned.


5. Top with Parmesan and pop back into the oven for 1-2 more minutes.


Asparagus fan? Yay or nay?
