Ingredients

  • 2 pounds (1 kg) asparagus washed, dried and wood ends removed
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese (or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese)
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste (about 1/2-3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C). Lightly grease a baking tray or sheet with non stick cooking oil spray.
  • Place the trimmed asparagus in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and use your hands to evenly coat onto the asparagus.
  • Transfer the asparagus and breadcrumb mixture onto prepared baking sheet and arrange into one even layer. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the asparagus are just tender.
  • Broil/grill for 2-3 minutes until breadcrumbs are golden browned and asparagus has reached desired doneness.
  • Serve warm.
