Verdant green asparagus takes on a mild nuttiness when roasted, making it the perfect base for a few other ingredients with a similar flavor profile. This recipe combines asparagus, Parmesan cheese and hazelnuts for a vegetarian bake that your whole family will love. And the best part? The recipe below doesn't even take 30 minutes to make.
Use pencil-thin green asparagus for the best results. Not only are they more tender and sweeter than the fatter ones, but they're also easier to prepare. You'll sometimes need to remove the fibrous outside of larger asparagus before cooking it. But with thinner ones, all you need to do is snap off the woody ends and enjoy!
