Learning how to steam asparagus allows you to reap all of the benefits from the nutrient packed vegetable. It pairs perfectly with any meat for a well rounded meal.

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.
