Slice off the rough ends of the asparagus (about a 0.5-1 inch / 1-2 cm)
Mix the asparagus and olive oil in a foil-lined baking sheet and spread them evenly
Shred significant amount of Parmesan cheese onto the asparagus

I was trying to come up with something interesting that would work for both Vegetarians and a number of allergy prone individuals in my company for this year's holiday potluck. This is what I came up with:

Savoury Roasted Butternut Squash

1kg/40 oz.... Butternut squash (peeled, cored - you can roast the seeds later for an extra treat if you like, and cut in 2 cm cubes)
500g/16 oz.... Cranberries (fresh, not dried)
500g/16 oz.... Pears (Bosk and Bartlett work well, peeled, cored, and cut in 2 cm cubes )
Mix relatively evenly and put in a baking pan

Warm enough virgin olive oil to cover the above
2 large tablespoons of minced garlic
2 large fresh Basil leaves, minced
2 4" stems of fresh Rosemary, leaves stripped and minced
1 4" stems of fresh Oregano, leaves stripped and minced
1/2 tablespoon sea salt

Cover the veggies in the herb infused oil, and place in an oven at 400-ish. Roast about half an hour to 45 min, to just before veggies start to get soft.

If you don't have nut allergies, you can add pecans or walnuts to this.

Fate guard you and grant you a Light to brighten your Way.
