Baked Asparagus Sticks
Crispy, cheesy asparagus is baked to perfection in this fun side dish, suitable for kids and grown-ups alike.
Preheat oven to 425° F. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking oil.
Place flour in one deep plate and the beaten egg in another deep plate. Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning; place this mixture in a third deep plate.
Make an assembly line with the plates. First, roll an asparagus spear in flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip the spear in the beaten egg to cover. Finally, coat asparagus in the bread crumb mixture, making sure it is evenly coated.
Put coated asparagus spear on the prepared wire rack. Coat remaining asparagus, arranging them on the baking sheet so the spears are not touching. Roast in the oven until tender-crisp and golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly. Serve warm with marinara dipping sauce.
