Since ancient Roman times, asparagus has been considered to be an aphrodisiac. Ovid, the famous Roman poet, thought that asparagus, as well as onions, honey, and pine nuts, stimulated the libido. Inspired by the ancient Romans, I've joined those ingredients in this easy-to-prepare side dish.
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
2. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on a work surface. Layer the asparagus and onion on the center of the foil, making a narrow stack. Drizzle the olive oil and honey over the vegetables and enclose in the foil, forming an airtight pouch. Bake for 5 minutes.
3. Remove the packet from the oven and preheat the broiler. Carefully open the packet and, using a fork, spread the asparagus and onion out into 1 layer. Season with salt and pepper and broil for about 4 minutes, or until the edges of the asparagus are crispy. Sprinkle with the bread crumbs and pine nuts and broil for about 2 minutes, or until golden.
4. Top with the Parmesan and serve.
