  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in oven.
  4. Roast for 12-15 minutes until tender.
  5. Sprinkle with Parmesan and return to over for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Serve with lemon wedges (if served as an appetizer/antipasta or with fish, if served with chicken or beef you may want to leave out the lemon)

        Worked great. Just needs two shakes of salt. Good squeeze of lemon and the parmesan really helps.
