Eating healthy can be a challenging task for me at times so I figured why not make it an enjoyable experience.

I looked up the nutritional gains of eating asparagus and realized there are quite a few health benefits. Asparagus helps fight cancer, is a natural diuretic, good source of fiber and is rich with vitamin B6 which gives you a boost of energy.

Asparagus is one of my favorite spring vegetables. However, while the most of the tender asparagus is edible; the end is not so appealing. Once you remove the tough and woody stem (or the very bottom), only juicy asparagus remains.

Today I’m bringing you my Parmesan Crusted Asparagus Spears.

Baking these spears covered in the flavors you get from Parmesan cheese and the crunchy texture of panko breadcrumbs can not only make dinner time interesting, but it can actually be a great game day snack as well.
