1 lb. Jersey Fresh asparagus
3 TBS. olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1/3 cup of parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Wash asparagus thoroughly;  Jersey asparagus tends to be a little sandy.  To remove sand, soak in cold water for a few minutes so sand can settle to the bottom of the bowl.  Note: To help retain its freshness, store asparagus upright in the refrigerator in a bowl of water or wrapped in a damp paper towel.  This helps to keep the stalks firm and prevent them from wilting.  With vegetable peeler, peel stalks of asparagus to remove outer skin.  This helps to make them more tender.  Spread out on a 13 X 9 baking pan.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Crush garlic on top and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.  Make sure to spread all over asparagus and coat thoroughly.  Bake for 15 minutes.
