Asparagus can be found year round, but the height of the season is March through June. There are numerous ways in which you can prepare this vegetable, but this is my favorite. When picking asparagus try to avoid the ones whose stalks are white. (This does not apply to white and purple asparagus.) Two other little facts. Asparagus is part of the Lily family and can be mircrowaved.

Pre Heat Oven 375

1 bunch of Asparagus
2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons of grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt and Pepper

On a baking sheet place Asparagus and drizzle the olive oil evenly over stalks. Followed by sprinkling the Parmesan Cheese and salt and Pepper. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Watch them while baking because you do not want them to over cook they should be tender not mushy.
