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.

Garnish with parmesan cheese and serve!  It’s really that simple and it’s really that delicious!


1 pound asparagus, trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 cloves garlic, pressed
Juice of 1/2 lemon, or more, to taste
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan, or more, to taste (No judgement for using more cheese!)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil or spray with non-stick spray.
Place asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste; gently toss to combine. Place into oven and roast for 10-15 minutes, or until tender but crisp.
Serve immediately, tossed with garlic, lemon juice and Parmesan.

    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 :)
