Garlic Parmesan Roasted Asparagus is an easy side dish with only four simple ingredients and ready in about 15 minutes.
Asparagus is in season and I couldn’t resist buying a few bundles. I especially like thin asparagus which have a milder flavor.
My favorite way to eat asparagus is to roast them. It’s so easy to sprinkle a few seasonings and then stick them in the oven. This garlic and parmesan cheese version is my latest way to make them.
I love the melted cheese finish and you don’t need to add many other seasonings because the garlic and cheese are so flavorful.
Roasted Parmesan Asparagus
- 1 lb thin asparagus
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese long shreds will stick to the asparagus better
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet (preferably a three quarter sheet) with parchment paper. Lay asparagus out in a single layer.
- Brush asparagus with olive oil. Sprinkle garlic powder evenly across. You don't have to use the full 1/4 tsp if you are trying to reduce your sodium intake. Sprinkle asparagus with parmesan cheese.
- Roast in the oven for about 10 minutes or until asparagus are tender and cheese is melted. You may need to increase the cooking time if you are using thicker asparagus stalks.
