Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

  • 2 1/2 lbs. fresh asparagus (about 30 large)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 lemons cut in wedges, for serving

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  2. Break thick ends off asparagus.
  3. Lay asparagus in a single layer on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender.  Sprinkle with the Parmesan and return to the oven for another minute.  Serve with lemon wedges.
*  Buy thickest asparagus possible because they have more flavor.
