Quick, easy and flavourful side dishes are sought after in my repertoire. Normally I steam asparagus and toss with butter and salt but roasting asparagus really brings out it's nutty flavour. Top that with cheesey, melty Parm and you have a side dish I could never say no to.

Recipe from Everyday Food: Great Food Fast

Serves 4 as a side dish

2 bunches asparagus (1 1/2 lbs)
1 tbsp olive oil
Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Trim the tough ends from the asparagus.

On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the asparagus with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.

Roast for 10-15 minutes until the asparagus is tender and the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
