The flavors all work well together to add a fullness of flavor to the asparagus!


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Bend asparagus gently until it breaks at a natural point, and discard ends.
  3. Toss asparagus with oil and minced garlic, and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  4. Season with salt and peppers and sprinkle with diced pancetta and parmesan cheese.
  5. Roast at 400F for 12 minutes or until done.
  6. Serve with lemon squeezed over asparagus.

I have to say this was really really good and easy !I love asparagus and made this today with swordfish Grilled Japanese Swordfish and my spinach salad, what a great meal !!! I had very young asparagus and it was very thin so next time I will adjust the cooking time. I did not use the lemon juice nor do I think I will in the future but this will be on my regular list "to make". Thanks for a great recipe and to the wonderful meal we had tonight ! Don't forget the wine and you have a perfect meal !!!! Pollyw
