Garlic Parmesan Roasted Asparagus ~ Aspargo Assado com Alho e Parmesão

Recipe by BelleoftheKitchen, Photo by Priscillakittycat

While we’re still honoring New Year’s resolutions, this recipe is oh so relevant.  Asparagus can be bitter but when seasoned and cooked properly, it’s almost exotic.  Accompanied by cheese and garlic they’re like an elegant (and healthy) version of Cheetos.

I like my asparagus a bit overcooked.  How do you like your asparagus?

1/2 pound fresh asparagus
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3 cloves minced garlic
2-3 Tablespoons parmesan cheese
olive oil spray

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.  Rinse the asparagus and trim off woody end pieces. Spread out in a thin layer on top of the prepared cookie sheet.  Spray the asparagus lightly with a coat of olive oil spray.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic, and parmesan cheese. Use your hands to mix the asparagus with all of the ingredients, then lay out into an even layer again. Spray with one more light coat of olive oil.

Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes (I bake for a bit longer). Remove from oven and serve immediately.


Enquanto ainda vamos na onda de New Year, a seguinte receita de Aspargo encaixa bem com as nossas metas.  Aspargo tem um gosto amargo.  Mas quando o tempero é bom, ele faz a gente gostar de coisa amarga.  Eu prefiro o aspargo bem cozido.

250 g de aspargo fresco
1/2 colher de chá de sal
1/2 colher de chá pimenta do reino
3 dentes de alho
2-3 colheres (sopa) queijo parmesão ralado
Spray de azeite de oliva

Aqueça o forno 425F.  Forre uma assadeira rasa com papel alumínio e reserve.  Enxague o aspargo e retire as pontas duras.  Espalhe os aspargos na assadeira.  Coloque uma camada leve do spray de azeite de oliva nos aspargos.  Regue com sal, pimenta, alho e o queijo parmesão.  Use as mãos para misturar os aspargos com todos os ingredientes e espallhe na assadeira novamente, formando uma só camada.  Regue com mais spray.  Asse no forno pré aquecido durante 8 minutos.  (Eu deixei mais)  Retire do forno e sirva.
