Parmesan Roasted Asparagus


Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

Yield: 4-5 Servings


  • 1 1/2 - 2 lbs asparagus (use thick spears), tough bottom ends trimmed
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, using a spoon stir together garlic and olive oil while pressing garlic against sides of bowl to extract some of the juices to infuse oil with flavor. Place asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet in a mound then pour garlic mixture over top and toss and rub spears to evenly coat.
  3. Spread into a single layer on baking sheet (place a row horizontally and couple rows vertically to fit them all if needed), sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Roast in preheated oven until tender, about 15 minutes then remove from oven, sprinkle cheese evenly over top and return to oven and roast 1 minute longer, or until cheese has melted. Serve immediately with lemon wedges for spritzing.
