We love Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese for a low carb side dish at our house. It is so easy to prepare but the taste is amazing! This is a great recipe for those following the Keto Diet. With the addition of the fat from the olive oil and Parmesan Cheese it is a great way to add healthy fat to your diet. Best of all you can serve this for company and they will have no idea how easy it is to make.
I like to prep my asparagus on Sunday and then when I heat it up I add the Parmesan cheese. Be sure to use real shredded cheese and not the stuff from the can. This is an easy Keto Diet Friendly Recipe.
