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.
