Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

I LOVE asparagus! Mmmm.... And this is a fast and easy way to cook it. I got this recipe from the Barefoot Contessa Family Style cookbook. Ina Garten is amazing!!

Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

2 1/2 lbs fresh asparagus (I used frozen today and it turned out softer, but still good)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. If the stalks are thick, peel the bottom half of each. Lay them in a single layer on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Sprinkle with Parmesan and return to oven for another minute.
