Very Good The roasted asparagus is very good. I love the texture and the cheese really makes the flavor pop. March 14, 2013
Sooooooo good!!!!! Being a lover of asparagus, I don't like to mask it's taste in any way. Usually I just roast it but adding the Parmesan cheese is truly a tasty recipe. It made a great alternative to enjoy. March 7, 2013
