Need a quick side dish idea? How about Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese?


1 bunch thin asparagus spears, trimmed

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon lemon juice


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 sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer.

Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving.


In the words of Ina Garten, “How easy is that?”
