Parmesan, Cajun Oven Baked Asparagus

Prep Time
Cook Time
Ready In

" I wanted something a bit different from my usual asparagus recipes and threw this together we loved it and I hope you will too. If you like your asparagus well cooked leave it in longer than the ten minutes. I just use a spray of olive oil and I am generous with the two tablespoons of parmesan."
