• 1 lb fresh asparagus
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Arrange in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. With a pastry brush, paint the oil on the asparagus spears.
  3. Roast until tender but still crisp, 8 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness of stalks. Turn spears occasionally for even cooking and to avoid browning.
  4. Place asparagus spears on serving platter. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve with lemon wedges.
