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!

We loved the asparagus, along with the company potatoes and the best baked pork tenderloin. our first recipes from creme de la crumb. we look forward to many more.

    Jack- thanks for your feedback! I am super excited to hear that you have tried and loved several recipes here!!

Delicious recipes!

I love this dish! I’ll often leave the garlic powder out, depending on what I’m serving it with, and I prefer to add the parmesan, along with an extra spritz of lemon, immediately before serving. When it’s in season, asparagus is a three times a week treat for me too.
