Fresh Roasted Asparagus

I was excited to see fresh asparagus in the grocery store last week.  I love the flavor of roasted asparagus. I just pour on a little olive oil and some lemon juice, give it a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and finish it off with freshly grated Parmesan. Delicious!

1 bunch of Asparagus, washed and ends trimmed

Place Asparagus on large baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice.  Sprinkle with kosher salt and black pepper.  Place in a 350 degree oven and roast for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with freshly ground Parmesan cheese.  Return to the oven and roast for 5 more minutes until tender.
