Roasted Asparagus with Parmigiano-Reggiano

I have been searching and searching for a vegetarian Parmigiano-Reggiano with no luck. If you guys see any out there, please let me know! I had to substitute Asiago cheese in this recipe, which I am sure changes the taste somewhat. This recipe is easy and quick, and is pretty low-calorie! Of course Toby said the asparagus could have been cooked longer (since they still had some crunch), but whatevs. I liked it.
