Oven Roasted Asparagus

There aren't many things that taste better than asparagus, when its done right. And, this recipe is a sure-fire way to make sure that happens. Super easy, extremely delicious, and totally satisfying. I could eat these all on their own.

Oven Roasted Asparagus
Slightly adapted from

  • 1 bunch asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional- I didn't use this)

  • Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F. Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears and then arrange them on a baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving.
