Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese

Roasted Asparagus With Parmesan


Roasted asparagus with Parmesan is lightly crisp with fantastic flavor. Make this delicious vegetable side in just 15 minutes. Ideal for weekday meals and Thanksgiving dinner.


Units Scale
  • 1 pound fresh thin asparagus
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • Flaky salt, to taste
  • Freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter (optional)
  • 1 lemon, for juice


RECIPE PREP: Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimming baking sheet with parchment paper.

  1. Rinse asparagus and pat dry between clean kitchen towels.
  2. Snap off the thick, tough woody ends and discard them.
  3. Place the asparagus the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus. Sprinkle with pressed garlic, flaky salt, cracked pepper, and a few pinches of Parmesan. Toss the stalks until they’re well coated in the oil, spices and cheese.
  5. Bake thin stalks for 9 to 12 minutes (bake thicker stalks for 15 to 20 minutes), or until slightly wilted and fork tender. If desired, drizzle with melted butter.
  6. Transfer roasted asparagus to a serving tray. Brighten the flavor with a squeeze of lemon juice. Sprinkle the top with remaining Parmesan cheese.


Recipe Variations: Lightly drizzle roasted asparagus with thick balsamic vinegar. For a hint of heat, sprinkle with red pepper flakes. For special occasions like Thanksgiving dinner, sprinkle the roasted asparagus with toasted sliced almonds.
