  • 1 lb. asparagus we used a thinner-cut asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan separated


  • First preheat oven to 425ºF and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Then, place asparagus on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toss.
  • Generously season asparagus with salt and pepper and toss again.
  • Sprinkle on 1/2 of the grated parmesan cheese and toss one more time.
  • Roast at 425ºF for 8 minutes*. Then, remove from oven, sprinkle on the remaining parmesan cheese and toss.
  • Bake again for 2-4 more minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are.
  • Serve with more cracked pepper.

Tips & Notes

Roasting time: we used thinner asparagus spears. So, if you buy super thick asparagus, you may need to increase your bake time.
