Parmesan-crusted Asparagus

I feel like this is a fairly common staple, but I thought I would post it just in case this beauty isn't part of your regular vegetable rotation. My favourite twist is to drizzle a little balsamic vinegar over the asparagus right before serving.

Parmesan-crusted Asparagus

1 lb. asparagus, washed and trimmed
1/2 c. fresh parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
balsamic vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Spread asparagus out on rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Shake pan to coat spears evenly.

3. Sprinkle cheese on spears. Shake pan to coat evenly. Make sure none of the spears overlap.

4. Bake for 20 mins or until parmesan has formed golden crust. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar immediately prior to serving.
