roasted asparagus with basil and parmesan

best broccoli is a long-standing favourite which, having made it with cauliflower and courgette, i fancied trying with asparagus.

it was a very simplified version – the asparagus was tossed with sliced garlic, chilli flakes, olive oil, salt and pepper then roasted at 180c for c10 minutes, until just tender. after removing it from the oven i squeezed over some lemon juice and sprinkled with grated parmesan and shredded basil.

delicious with roast chicken and definitely worth a try.
