Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Recipe by  

"Salty and savory, the roasting method kills the natural bitterness of asparagus. Try it next to grilled fish or lamb."

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl, and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving.

  • Cook's Note
  • To remove woody ends, grab stalk of asparagus at either end and bend until it snaps. It will naturally snap where it starts to get tough.

I make this all the time, and it's unbelievably good! I use this recipe exactly, except I've never tried it with garlic. I'm going to try it next time! Also, instead of tossing the asparagus with the parmesan, I toss with all the other ingredients and lay in a single layer, then sprinkle the parmesan all over the top. I bake mine at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus. Oh, and a hint: if you line the baking sheet with aluminum foil, there's hardly any clean up!

I used half the salt and still it was way to salty. otherwise it was good.

I prepared the asparagus exactly as the recipe indicated, including all the optional ingredients. It was delicious, but very salty. I recommend reducing the salt to 1/2 tsp or 1/4 tsp.

I make asparagus this way all the time! Didn't know it could taste so good! Do add the garlic though...I don't use the lemon juice. 400 degrees for 10 minutes works in my oven.

Optional Parmesan, garlic, and lemon juice - a definite yes to all three! This is excellent and turned out perfectly.

Best way I've cooked asparagus yet! I coated the asparagus with everything but the parmesan cheese. Then when I put it on a foil lined cookie sheet, I sprinkled the cheese. When it cooked the cheese got crispy and gave it a kind of deep fried texture. It was great, and easy and will make it this way everytime.

Nice recipe, however I prefer my asparagus to be a little crisper. 12 minutes was too long for the thick stalks I had... 8 minutes would be about right at 425.

A tasty, easy-to-prepare asparagus recipe. Like other reviewers I would say 12 minutes is altogether too long for thin stalks. Six to eight minutes works for me. I added all the optional ingredients, except the lemon juice, halved the salt and oil (there was lots) and served with Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze (also from this site). Thanks for the recipe.
