Roasted Garlic Parmesan Asparagus

Prime season to enjoy asparagus is Springtime, which is why it’s seen on so many Easter & Passover tables. It’s super easy to make and the flowering plant adds a much needed color to meat and carb heavy celebrations.

I’ve made asparagus many, many, many different ways, but this is still one of my favorite go-to’s. It’s basically a quick clean, toss and bake and is ready in 15 minutes. You can make this the day before your celebrations to save time (and oven space) too!

*To trim asparagus, hold each tip and bend it until it breaks. It will naturally break where it needs to. Keep the flowered end and save the woody ends for a stock in your freezer.
