Roasted asparagus is the best way to enjoy fresh spring asparagus!
With Parmesan, lemon, and cracked black pepper, this is going to be your go-to asparagus recipe.
Asparagus spears Extra virgin olive oil Garlic cloves Grated Parmesan cheese Kosher salt Ground black pepper Lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 425ºF.
Toss the asparagus spears with all of the ingredients except the lemon juice in a large bowl or dish.
Transfer the asparagus to a sheet pan and roast for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the tips are just beginning to char.
Squeeze the fresh lemon juice over the asparagus and toss to coat, then serve.
While asparagus can be steamed and sautéed, I think roasting is definitely the best way to cook asparagus.
It brings out the natural sweetness of the vegetable and makes it nice and crispy on the ends. So good!
