Grilled Purple Asparagus

I used purple asparagus because it looked fun and I happened to come across it at my local grocery store. Feel free to substitute green asparagus instead.

1 bunch purple (or green) asparagus
Olive oil
1 Tbsp. grated parmesan

Preheat grill on medium heat. Trim asparagus and discard the ends. (To trim pull up on bottom end of asparagus and see where it snaps naturally; trim other spears to that same length.) Drizzle asparagus with olive oil and sprinkle salt and freshly ground black pepper. For best results skewer asparagus or preheat and use grill pan. If you don't have either of these things, a sheet aluminum foil works just fine. Grill asparagus about 5-7 minutes or until tender. (Thinner stalks will take less time.) Sprinkle with grated parmesan and serve.
