Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

1 pound thin asparagus spears
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 ounce shaved Parmesan cheese
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, or to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place asparagus on a
baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, and toss to coat. Arrange
asparagus spears in a single layer. Spread Parmesan cheese over
asparagus, and season with freshly ground black pepper.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is melted and
asparagus is tender but crisp. Serve immediately on warm plates,
sprinkling with balsamic vinegar to taste.
