Crisp asparagus, sharp parmesan blend together in this simple, yet elegant, dish.

"This was so easy and fast to make. Nice and tender. I added some McCormick Rosemary and Garlic grind to it. This will become a family favorite. Hubby raved about it.
Served it with a Porkloin with Hunter sauce that was cooking in the crockpot and garlic mashed potatoes with sauteed onions and mushroom as a side."


2 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus; (about 30 large)
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper; freshly ground
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese; freshly grated
1 large Lemon; cut in wedges for serving

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (bake, not broil). If the stalks of the asparagus are thick, peel the bottom 1/2 of each. Lay them in a single layer on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and return to the oven for another minute. Serve with lemon wedges

Love roasted asparagus! Putting cheese over it put it over the top!

Very easy, unless you like to peel the ends of the spears like I do. Squeeze the lemon on right after it comes out of the oven. Note cooking times will vary with how thick the asparagus is.

My family devoured this dish! My only recommendation is to make twice as much - because it goes so fast!

Even my son who doesn't like asparagus was raving about it!
