Lemon Parmesan Roasted Asparagus is the perfect recipe to introduce fresh spring asparagus into your menu!
One of my very favorite veggies is asparagus – I love the flavor, the texture, and I feel like it is really really easy to use in dishes OR by its lonesome. I don’t feel that way about all vegetables. Come springtime, I buy asparagus weekly and use it 2-3 times during the week either in pastas and salads, or by itself as a side dish. I’m sharing my favorite go-to lemon parmesan roasted asparagus recipe for busy weeknights – and even better, it only takes 5 minutes of prep and pairs with just about any entree!
Lemon Parmesan Asparagus
Lemon-Parmesan Asparagus is the perfect recipe to introduce fresh spring asparagus into your menu. Top fresh asparagus with butter, garlic and parmesan cheese before roasting for a tender and full-flavored vegetable side.
- 1 1/2 pounds asparagus spears, ends trimmed
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- juice of 1 small lemon
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 °F and lightly grease baking pan.
Place spears in a large bowl and drizzle with melted butter. Toss to coat. Arrange asparagus in single layer on prepared baking sheet.
Juice lemon over asparagus, being careful to not let loose seeds fall. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and parmesan cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until asparagus is tender and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
