Roasted Asparagus

I used to hate asparagus. Now it is my favorite vegetable. This is the recipe that converted me. It takes 15-30 minutes and works with thin or thick asparagus stalks. 

You'll need:
olive oil
minced shallot
red pepper flakes
lemon zest
kosher salt

Mix oil, shallot and spices in a bowl. Trim asparagus. Toss with dressing. Spread on a cookie sheet and roast in a 400 degree oven until just soft enough to bite. 

Garnish with grated parmesan.
