Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

(originally made 1/2008)

I haven't been an asparagus eater for long, my mom used to make the canned stuff when I was growing up and I'd run screaming   :)    I bought a bag of frozen asparagus spears, thought I would give them a try with this.     This recipe is easy and good, I'd give it an 8 out of 10, and I think I would rate it higher if I had used fresh asparagus.    Definitely made the "make again" list!

If the stalks of the asparagus are thick, peel the bottom 1/2 of each. Lay them in a single layer on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and return to the oven for another minute. Serve with lemon wedges.
