This Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Crust is an easy, delicious and kid-friendly side dish.

Parmesan Crusted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar

One of my favorite early Spring vegetables is fresh asparagus, especially when it’s roasted. Of course, almost any vegetables taste good roasted. Usually I just toss asparagus with olive oil and season with a little salt and pepper, but recently, I made a snazzier version by adding a little chopped garlic and sprinkling some Parmesan cheese on top before roasting.
