I’ve never been big on asparagus but I found this recipe at allrecipes.com the other day and decided to try it. Yummy! Even my 4-year-old granddaughter liked it.

Parmesan Asparagus

10 medium fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese (fat free if you can find it)
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt

Brush asparagus spears with oil; place on a baking sheet coated with nonstick vegetable spray. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 6 minutes; turn asparagus. Bake 6 minutes longer or until asparagus is tender. Combine grated Parmesan cheese and garlic salt; sprinkle over asparagus.

This is for Cycle 1. Forgot to add that to the title.

sounds good – hadn’t thought of adding the cheese! 

If you are not a real fan of asparagus, or any vegetable for that matter, you might want to spray them with Pam (or use a little of your olive oil), salt and pepper them.  Roast at 400 degrees for about 5 min – check for doneness…you would be supprised how delicious “boring” vegetables can be when roasted.  My personal favorite is onion!

Thanks for the idea of roasting our vegetables instead of steaming them. It will be a welcomed change. The added cheese sounds like it would make it very tasty. Thanks again.

I have been making this long before I started the 17DD.  I use season salt sometimes instead of garlic and it work s well with broccoli, chopped tomatoes (9in chunks) or green beans.  My 3 year old actually gets excited when he sees me making this!
