I can't imagine eating asparagus any other way. I put some olive oil in a zip lock bag with the asparagus and shook it up to coat the spears thoroughly. Then put them on the baking sheets with a sprinkling of salt. Roasted them for only 6-7 minutes and then ate them plain. Perfect even without the cheese and lemon, but that would be great also. I'm going to try using these baked spears on top of a spinach salad with some ginger dressing and sliced almonds. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

i akways roast asparagus this way. i use home made garlic infused olive oil, and drizzle it on the asparagus, tossing after 5 minutes, cook for 5 more minutes. add freshly grated parmesano reggiano, and a spritz of freah lemon juice, heaven!

Delicious! I love how charred the asparagus got, and the parmesan and lemon complimented that flavor beautifully. This has just became my go to asparagus recipe. Thank you Barb.
