Lemon Parmesan Asparagus

A quick and easy side dish with fresh lemon juice, garlic and Parmesan goodness, made with just 5 min prep!

Roasted asparagus is one of my absolute favorite side dishes ever. It’s quick, easy, and pairs with almost every dish. But after I made the parmesan lemon zucchini last week, I decided to give that flavor combo a try with these. And boy, was I in for a treat.

Now this is just as simple as roasted asparagus with a few easy additions – freshly squeezed lemon juice, pressed garlic, and a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. That’s it. But don’t be fooled – these three simple additions bring in so much flavor to such an easy side dish.

Best of all, you can control exactly how much lemon juice and Parmesan you want. And if you double the Parmesan cheese – well, I definitely won’t be the one judging. After all, you can never have too much Parmesan cheese!

Currently cracking up laughing at how we almost posted the same thing today! Great minds! I didn’t add parmesan and lemon, but I love you did. Awesome recipe 😉

This is over the top amazing! Can’t wait to make it!

This sounds really good. Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables.

We love asparagus in this household! Beautiful dish and pictures!

I’m just learning to like asparagus – and this sounds like a perfect recipe for me to play with! Love that I can control the lemon and parm. 😀

Simple. Delicious. And gorgeous!!

i dont think you can ever go wrong with the flavours of parmesan and lemon together.. love a good asparagus dish also! definitely a great side i will be making this week. thanks!

I could eat asparagus every single day. Love the addition of lemon, parm, and garlic. Yum!

This is my kind of dish! So delicious!

What a perfect summer side!

This was a hit! Awesomely delicious. Thank you. It will find a place of honor among the “keepers”.

Just discovered damn delicious & as a pre diabetic type 2 veggie I am luvin your site Mmm mm

I didn’t really eat asparagus growing up (except for the one time my aunt grilled some and smothered them in butter and I fell in love). So, I’m not really sure why it took me so long to start trying recipes that feature asparagus. Last week I made a shrimp and asparagus stir fry that even my picky, veggie hating fiance liked. So I figured what the heck, maybe he’ll eat asparagus on their own. This recipe was a total success! He even declined when I offered to sprinkle on some more Parmesan (and he never says no to more cheese). Thank you so much for sharing! I’ll be keeping this recipe for a snack or yummy side dish for chicken or fish as I attempt to get the mister and I eating healthier.

I made this tonight for the 3rd time. I tweaked it slightly, there’s a local company called Great Oil who does infused olive oils (among other things), I used garlic infused olive oil along with some garlic powder, did it at 375F for 15 min (I was using the oven for something else), was delicious! So far, for every 25 degree difference, I’ve added 5 min to the cooking time and its worked out great.

Come join me in my culinary adventures where we’ll be using simple, fresh ingredients and transforming them into sophisticated and elegant meals for the everyday home cook.
