This is an elegant dish with no hassle! It is mess-free as well. So hello– cleverness is written all over this one, folks!
Wanna know why? Well, experience it by placing place a bunch of fresh asparagus…
…on a parchment paper-lined large sheet pan. Brush them with olive oil, and then sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Then, throw minced garlic, fresh thyme leaves and grated Parmesan cheese on top… and bake at 400 F for about 8 minutes. Yep!
OK! Now remove pan from the oven and make room for the shrimp skewers. Brush them with olive oil and repeat the rest of the process.
