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!

  4. Hi all,
    I have made the roasted lemon parmesan green asparagus and it tasted nice. Next time though I will mix the olive oil with the garlic and then in the oven. When taking out pour some lemon juice and all the parmesan on top.
