From my friend, Kathleen.


1/2 lb. fresh asparagus, trimmed

2 tsp olive oil
1 TB lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 TB freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place asparagus on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake at 400 degrees F. for 10-15 minutes, until asparagus is crisp tender.  You could use this with green beans, snap peas, or sliced zucchini also.
