This is a very simple tasty salad or side dish that goes great with spring lamb, grilled chicken or fish.
What you need
- 1 bunch fresh asparagus
- 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 teaspoons good quality aged balsamic vinegar
- Freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano (or parmesan cheese)
What to do
Heat oven to 180°c.
Break off and discard the woody end of the asparagus, then bake for 8 minutes or until asparagus is tender but still has some crunch.
Place on a dish and drizzle the olive oil and balsamic over the top. Sprinkle a little freshly ground pepper and the shaved parmesan, then serve.
