Roasted Lemon Parmesan Garlic Asparagus

A quick an easy side that is full of delicious parmesan garlic flavor with a hint of lemon.  This is a side that you will make again and again!


Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables and I eat it almost daily!  This recipe inspiration came from one of my very first recipes on the blog, this parmesan asparagus.   I am always looking to find new flavor ideas when I cook my asparagus.  Since I love lemon and garlic, I decided to add both!

The combination of the three was absolutely incredible!



Roasting asparagus couldn’t be easier.  I love cooking it with our dinner because I throw it in the oven and it takes less than ten minutes to cook.

It gets a crisp edge on the outside, and the asparagus is nice and tender on the inside.  This asparagus was full such amazing flavor and I LOVED the lemon parmesan garlic flavor that coated the outside.   I could have eaten the entire pan by myself.  🙂

If you are looking for a delicious side that is full of amazing flavor, you won’t regret making this one!
