Roasted Garlic Parmesan Asparagus

We just celebrated my youngests birthday yesterday. 

CANNOT believe he's 5! 

He is such a sweet boy who is obsessed with sports!  You just have to see this boy in action...he is amazing!  Especially when it comes to baseball.  So he has the perfect birthday...right during baseball season...he got a baseball tee, bat, ball, a baseball shirt and Colorado Rockies tickets for his birthday!

You should hear him rattle off his favorite Rockies players.  He especially likes Troy Tulowitzki (I don't know if I even spelled that right!) and Todd Helton.  He is often one of the 2 when up to bat.

He also is my green vegetable lovin' boy!  He especially loves broccoli and asparagus!  I know...weird.  What 5 year old likes those things?

We had this asparagus the other night and he ate his fair share of them.  And actually all the kiddo's liked them.  Yeah!

Roasted Garlic Parmesan Asparagus

1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

Wash asparagus, and cut off ends, if needed. Lay asparagus in a single line on foil.  Drizzle with the olive oil and then sprinkle on the seasonings. 

Roast in the oven for 10 minutes.  Take out and sprinkle with the Parmesan.  Return to oven and continue to roast for an additional 5-8 minutes.  You want the asparagus to be crisp-tender.
