Tuscan Parmesan Asparagus


Asparagus has definitely become one of my favorite vegetables. I can eat it lightly sauteed, roasted, grilled, steamed or baked. It doesn't matter to me.

My standby is always to roast it with a little garlic powder and crushed red pepper on top but I wanted to branch out a bit and find something new.

    • 1 pound fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
    • 1 Roma tomato, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds 
    • 2 tbsp. olive oil
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
    • fresh cracked black pepper 
    • kosher salt 
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking dish or baking sheet with non-stick spray.
2. In a medium bowl toss together the asparagus and tomato slices with the olive oil and garlic powder. Arrange asparagus and tomatoes into the baking dish.
3. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top and bake for 15 minutes or until the asparagus is tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Honestly, this could be a meal for me. I don't even need a protein or starch to go along with it, just a big ole plate of this and I'll be one happy camper.
