Oven Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese

Oven Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese (4 servings)

  • Author: Bobby


  • 1 pound asparagus stalks, thick
  • Two tablespoons olive oil, extra virgin
  • Black pepper, freshly ground
  • Two cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt
  • Lemon juice
  • Parmesan cheese, to taste


  1. Rinse the stalks in running water, and prepare the stalks if they’re thick by cutting them off or peeling them with a vegetable peeler.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F, and line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Place the asparagus stalks on the pan in a single line. Don’t place them over each other, but side by side.
  3. Drizzle the spears with olive oil and rub them in. Next, add the salt, pepper, and minced garlic and rub it in thoroughly.
  4. Put the Asparagus-filled pan in the oven and roast them for 10 minutes. Be sure to check a few minutes before for doneness. You’ll want the stalks to be lightly browned and easy to pierce with a fork.
  5. Serve the roasted asparagus spears with a drizzle of lemon juice and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese. But if you’re vegan, you can skip the cheese.
