Tuscan Roast Asparagus

Tuscan Roast Asparagus
Today I have a really quick and easy asparagus dish for you, tuscan roast asparagus! Asparagus is tossed in oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper and topped with slices of tomatoes and plenty of parmesan before being roasted to perfection! Roasting the asparagus and tomatoes concentrates and caramelizes their flavours, bringing them out, and making them even better and of course smothering everything in melted cheese is always good! This tuscan roasted asparagus take only a little bit of time and effort and it makes for a really tasty side for any summer meal!
