  • Local fresh asparagus, washed, trimmed - 10.5 lbs
  • Vegetable oil - 6 Tbsps
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Pepper - 1/2 tsp
  • Grated parmesan cheese - 7 ozs


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Wash asparagus spears and trim off the tough ends. Cut asparagus into 3-inch lengths.
  2. Place asparagus in a large container. Add the oil, parmesan, salt and pepper, and toss to coat the asparagus pieces.

  4. Roast in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the asparagus pieces are lightly browned and blistered.  Critical Control Point: Heat to 140°F or higher.
  5. Serve ½ cup portions using a #8 scoop or ½ cup spoodle.

Critical Control Point: Hold for hot service at 135°F or higher.
