Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

Roasting vegetables is one of the easiest sides to prepare. This recipe came from Ina Garten Barefoot Contessa Family Style. It's one of my favorite cookbooks.
Parmesan Roasted Asparagus
2 pounds fresh asparagus
2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Snap off tough ends of asparagus.
Lay them in a single layer on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender.
Sprinkle with Parmesan and return to oven for another minute.
Serve immediately!
