Parmesan and Garlic Asparagus


Broiled Parmesan and Garlic Asparagus

This is one of those simple healthy recipes that take almost no prep work.  I think the hardest part was mincing the garlic, whew!  I thought I’d be fancy and cut the ends off the asparagus this time around, but I prefer just breaking them at the right spot and going for that rustic look.  

Butter is optional on these and it will enhance the flavor, but if you are going for healthy the below recipe should do it!
