Saturday Recipe

A new one, to me anyway, from Closet Cooking.

Tuscan Roast Asparagus


 Servings4
Asparagus and tomatoes seasoned with salt and pepper and roasted to perfection with a topping of melted parmesan cheese.

ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (or Italian seasoning)
  • 1 large tomato, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
directions
  1. Toss the asparagus and tomatoes in the oil, lemon juice and zest, salt and pepper, place the asparagus on a baking sheet in a single layer with the slices of tomato on top, sprinkle on the parmesan and roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven until they start to caramelize, about 15-20 minutes, mixing half way through.

Option: Drizzle with balsamic vinegar or toss in balsamic vinaigrette.
Option: Garnish with fresh chopped parsley or basil.

Have a great day

  5. I could make this today if it didn't call for lemon. I'm not in the mood to go back to the store to get one.
