easy roasted asparagus with parmesan

I tried asparagus once when I was young. It was tough and stringy and I thought “Yuck, how can people like this stuff? It is awful!” And I never tried it again.

Last year I was talking to a few of my friends about gardening and the topic of asparagus came up. I mentioned my bad experience with it and they all told me that I had eaten overripe asparagus. That it really can be delicious and that I should give it another chance.

Recipe for easy roasted parmesan asparagus

When I saw asparagus on sale for 99¢ a pound at my grocery store, I decided it was time. I purchased a bundle and then came home and started looking for ways to prepare it. I of course started with my favorite blogs! Leigh Anne at yourhomebasedmom had a recipe that looked really yummy, so I decided to give it a try. And you know what, I loved it!

It was nice and tender and had a great flavor. Even my boys liked it. That may have had something to do with the fact that I let them use their fingers, but hey, whatever works, right?

Parmesan Roasted Asparagus and Weekly Menu
  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus stalks (You want to use the thin ones!)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt (I like Kosher salt)
  • 1/8 - 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp freshly grated parmesan cheese
  1. Cut about an inch off the bottoms of the asparagus stalks. Line them up in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
  2. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Use your hands to rub the olive oil evenly over the stalks.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Bake at 400° for 5-10 minutes, or just till tender. Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese and cook for 2-3 more minutes or till cheese melts. Serve immediately.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across
    a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking
    intelligently about. I am very happy I found this in my
    search for something concerning this.
