Where did the time go? I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner! It’s time for turkey, stuffing (or dressing, depending on what you call it) and all of the fixings! I love the Thanksgiving staples as much as the next person; no Thanksgiving meal would be complete without stuffing, green bean casserole and mashed potatoes – but I like to shake it up a little. Let’s try something a little different this year and bring new Thanksgiving Side Dishes to the family table! This Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Recipe is really easy to make and is sure to appeal to even the pickiest of eaters around Thanksgiving time.
My family has always done a potluck style Thanksgiving dinner – well, we do every family holiday dinner in the potluck style. With a family of over 20 gathering for each holiday meal, it’s just easier that way! I’ve been after my mom to have Thanksgiving dinner catered by Boston Market for years, but she loves having everyone make a homemade dish…
One of these days…
Until then, potluck style it is! My mom and dad make a chicken (yes, we do chicken instead of Turkey) and a ham, but lately my cousin has been bringing a traditional Thanksgiving turkey to dinner. Around the holiday table, you’ll find everything from deviled eggs, creamed corn casserole, green bean casserole, my grandma’s pea salad, different kinds of stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and sometimes I’ll do something different, like roasted Brussels sprouts – this year I’m planning on bringing this Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Recipe!
Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Recipe
- 1 bunch of fresh Asparagus
- 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- pinch of salt and pepper
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil.
- Wash the asparagus and trim the white ends off (you'll want to remove about an inch).
- Lay flat on the lined cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with Parmesan.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
This is such a simple side dish and one that everyone will enjoy. Kids might frown at first sight if you haven’t served them asparagus before, but once they realize there is CHEESE on it…they should be excited to taste that first bite!
