Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepperto taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper, for easy cleanup.
Wash the asparagus and pop off the woody ends. Place the asparagus on the prepared sheet pan. Toss the asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste.
Using a Microplane, grate as much fresh Parmesan cheese over the asparagus as you want. Then grate the zest of one lemon over the asparagus.
Place the sheet pan in the oven. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until the cheese is lightly golden and the asparagus are crispy
It is important to grate the cheese before zesting the lemon. The lemon zest moisture and oils will cause too much of the cheese to stick to the bottom of the grater and it won’t fall down onto the asparagus as good.
