Foodie Friday [Roasted Asparagus]

I've recently found that I like asparagus.  I never had it growing up because my mom didn't like the taste.  Fortunately, my husband has always liked asparagus and even my kids tolerate it enough to eat a stalk.  Here's our favorite way to make asparagus.

Roasted Asparagus

  • 1 lb asparagus (washed and trimmed)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400○
  2. Place asparagus in a large pan lined up so they aren’t overlapping
  3. Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, and season with salt & pepper
  4. Sprinkle cheese over asparagus
  5. Cook for 15 minutes

  1. yummy. I've done this with slivered garlic, olive oil & sea salt but not tired your combo yet. My neighbor has a recipe similar to yours that I have yet to try. She also adds a drizzle or sriracha sauce and maple syrup (she says it sounds weird but tasted good)

  2. That does sound like a delicious recipe! I don't cook asparagus often, my mom didn't like it growing up either so I'm not very used to it.

  3. This sounds very yummy! I need to try this.

  4. I l.o.v.e asparagus. I always make it on the stove top with lots of garlic, but have never tried roasting it in the oven. I know that I like it cooked on the stovetop much better than grilling it because cooking it on the grill dries it out and makes it taste burnt almost. Thanks for this recipe!
