Roasted Asparagus


Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

24 large asparagus spears (about 2 pounds), trimmed and peeled
Extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Aged balsamic vinegar
Parmesan, for shaving

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400F. Arrange asparagus spears in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle oil over asparagus and turn to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Roast, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and just tender, 18-20 minutes.

Transfer asparagus to a platter. To serve, drizzle vinegar over hot asparagus and use a vegetable peeler to shave Parmesan over the spears.
