Ingredients:

1/2 lemon

Directions:
Directions:
preheat oven to 425 F

To baking dish, add:
Olive oil
Salt
Then prepared asparagus (washed, fibrous ends removed, I leave them full length as opposed to cutting to bite-size)
mix asparagus to coat with oil/salt mixture
Roast for 10 minutes

Remove from oven and
add capers, nuts,
mix to coat
sprinkle cheese and squeeze lemon juice over it all

Replace in oven for 3-5 more minutes

You can put it all in for 12-15 minutes but I don't particularly like the nuts and capers cooked that much

Adjust time so asparagus has some blackened tips

Personal Notes:
My grandchildren, Aiden and Rena loved this the first time they tried it. (They were both sub-teens at the time) Even more impressive, my brother and his wife (ardent non-veggie eaters) both loved it.
