Roasted Lemon Parmesan Asparagus 

This simple roasted asparagus dish with fresh lemon juice, garlic, and parmesan has quickly become our favorite way to prepare asparagus!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line the asparagus in a single layer on your prepped baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.  I roll the spears around on the baking sheet to make sure they’re evenly coated.

Bake for 10-15 minutes.  Immediately top with garlic and fresh lemon juice and toss to combine.

    I always make my asparagus that way!! It is so good. I usually just use garlic powder instead of actual garlic, but I’ll have to give that a try. The brussels look really good too :)
