Roasted Parmesan Asparagus - This is one of the easiest and most flavorful ways to prepare this veggie. And you know you can't ever go wrong with Parmesan!

Greetings from Paris!

Butters and I took a quick getaway trip for a week, eating croissants and crepes left and right. Although he did tear up an entire roll of toilet paper in the hotel bathroom today. But still, a vacation is a vacation. And you can follow our entire journey on snapchat (username: @chungahrhee).

Again, it’s just about croissants, crepes and Butters. And the occasional toilet paper mess.

But really, what we need to talk about are these asparagus spears – these Parmesan smothered spears, simply roasted with a few pantry ingredients.

Yet, this easy method is by far one of the best ways to prepare this veggie. It’s tender, crisp, and unbelievably juicy, with just enough melted cheese on top.

I’ll honestly just take a plate of this right now with another chocolate croissant.

K, thanks.
