    1. Preheat oven to 230 C / Gas mark 8.
    2. Place asparagus on a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil, and toss to coat. Arrange asparagus spears in a single layer. Spread Parmesan over asparagus, and season with freshly ground black pepper.
    3. Bake 12 to 15 minutes in preheated oven, until cheese is melted and crispy, and asparagus is tender but firm. Serve immediately on warm plates, sprinkling with balsamic vinegar to taste.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
