ROASTED ASPARAGUS WITH CHEESE
1 lb fresh asparagus, ends snapped or cut off
3 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
½ t sea salt
½ t freshly ground black pepper

½ cup grated asiago cheese
Spread the asparagus evenly in a single layer on a medium sheet pan.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Drizzle mixture over asparagus and evenly cover, using your hands.
Bake in oven for 13 to 15 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and turn oven to broil.
Sprinkle cheeses over asparagus, mostly in the center.
Return to oven and broil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted and lightly brown.
It is so delicious!
