Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

I love, love, love fresh asparagus. It is a fabulous vegetable, and I can eat this whole recipe by myself (which is probably a good thing considering neither my husband nor son will touch asparagus - sigh).

This is a great, easy, roasted asparagus recipe that goes great with anything! We enjoyed this with a steak dinner. I like to sneak the leftovers out of the refrigerator a couple at a time as a snack too! :D

I don't always add the garlic powder, depends on my mood. You could also throw some minced garlic into the mix in place of garlic powder if you love garlicky asparagus!
