Roasted Asparagus and Other Vegetables

Ingredients
1 1/2
pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed, or other vegetables, (see below)
2
tablespoons chopped fresh herbs or 2 tsp. dried herbs, crushed (optional)
2
centimeters extra-virgin olive oil
 
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1
ounce Parmesan cheese, shaved

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Heat a heavy shallow baking pan in the oven for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl toss asparagus with herbs, oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. In the hot baking pan spread asparagus in a single layer. Return to oven. Roast, uncovered, until spears are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on spear thickness, stirring once during roasting.
  4. Remove baking pan from oven. With tongs, transfer asparagus to a serving platter. Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan cheese. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
