Garlic and Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

Our entire marriage, my hubby always said “I don’t like asparagus”. I never made it with any of our meals because of that. A few weeks ago, our local produce stand opened up and we of course, had to go get stocked up. *If you have a local produce stand, be sure to shop there for local, fresh produce, I love the selection of ours and how fresh everything is.Β 
While we were there, they had asparagus. Ooooooo it looked WAY too yummy to pass up, so I added it to the basket and said “sorry honey, you’ll have to learn to love it, hehe”. I decided to add some flavor to it, since my hubby and I love garlic and Parmesan. When I made this, I paired it with some grilled salmon for dinner. Lets just say, my hubby now retracts his “I don’t like asparagus” statement and is looking forward to the next time I make some. YEA!!!Β 



  • 1 bunch asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, (grated works best)
  • Salt/Pepper (to taste)




  1. Place asparagus on the bottom of a baking dish.
  2. Pour olive oil on top of asparagus and toss to coat.
  3. Arrange asparagus in a single layer.
  4. Sprinkle garlic and Parmesan on top, as well as desired amount of salt and pepper.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven (425) for about 15 minutes, or until fork tender.

    We love our asparagus cooked like this. We also have this powder called true lemon which I sprinkle on to add a little zing! Most times I end up getting them super crispy and they are almost like fries πŸ™‚

    Try it with crumbled bacon sometime too. Super yummy. Or you can use different chillis and peppers with this recipe to give it a spicy flare!
