A quick and easy side dish with fresh lemon juice, garlic and Parmesan goodness. Now, this is just as simple as roasted asparagus with a few easy additions – freshly squeezed lemon juice, pressed garlic, and a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1 to 1 1/2 lbs. Fresh Asparagus
  • Approximately 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

  • 2 Tablespoons Freshly Grated Parmesan, or more to taste.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet.
  2. Place asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste; gently toss to combine. Place into oven and roast for 8 minutes, or until tender but crisp.

Notes

  • You can control exactly how much lemon juice and Parmesan you want. And if you double the Parmesan cheese – well, I definitely won’t be the one judging. After all, you can never have too much Parmesan cheese!
  • Make sure to trim the bottoms of the Asparagus BEFORE preparing! (That is the end without the little leaves!)
