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!

    Absolutely delicious! We made it twice now and only changed adding the garlic to toast it while cooking asparagus so it wasn’t raw.

    1. It is best warm but room temperature should still be delicious! Cold may not taste the greatest with the Parmesan. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

  2. here in the south of Spain we adore the asparagus, we cook it in many forms and variety, I see your recipe do not hesitate to try, simple and exquisite. Thank you
