Parmesan roasted asparagus

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Parmesan roasted asparagus

1/2 pound trimmed asparagus spears
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven broiler. Place asparagus in a baking dish and drizzle evenly with olive oil. Using a fork, turn asparagus spears over in dish to coat evenly with olive oil. Broil asparagus 4–5 inches from broiler for 4–6 minutes, or until crisp-tender when pierced with a fork; broil with the oven door closed, but keep a watch over cooking process, as oil can spatter. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
