Hi. I'm Miranda and, today, I'm gonna show you how to make Roasted Asparagus. Now, this is an occasion where simpler is better. The sweet taste of asparagus is heightened when roasted quickly and showered with parmesan cheese. I have our ingredients all laid out here so let's get started. We have one pound of fresh, washed, untrimmed asparagus, an eighth of a teaspoon of ground black pepper, one tablespoon of olive oil, and three tablespoons of fresh grated parmesan cheese. So we're gonna start. I have the asparagus here already in a little 2-quart baking dish, so I'm just going to sprinkle with the pepper. Now, sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle. Beautiful. And then drizzle it with the olive oil and just give it a nice toss to coat. This won't be covered. We're just roasting it uncovered so I just wanna make sure that every little asparagus spear is nice and coated with the olive oil so it doesn't dry out. Beautiful. We're gonna save the cheese 'til the end. My oven is behind me, preheated at 450 degrees, so I'm gonna pop it in for 15 minutes. They're gonna get nice and roasted and brown and I'm going to toss it at least 2 to 3 times during the cooking process, so let's come back in 15 minutes when our asparagus is nice and roasted. All right, so it's been 15 minutes. Look at my gorgeous roasted asparagus. Still crisp and tender, bright green but with some nice roasted little bits. Now, we're just gonna transfer this to a warmed platter. I've got this nice warmed plate here. Look how gorgeous. This would be so good, you know, with seafood, as any sort of side. Roasted asparagus like this, so fantastic, and now, of course, the crowning glory, we're going to sprinkle it with that parmesan cheese. So, keeping it simple, keeping it delicious, allowing the asparagus to really, really shine. There you go. Now you know how to make Roasted Asparagus.
