"This has to be the quickest and simplest recipe for asparagus that I've ever tried. The asparagus comes out tender crisp just the way I think it should be! From Martha Stewart Living's Everyday Food magazine, June 2004 issue."

"I love oven roasted asparagus however; this is the first time I have added Parmesan cheese to it. What a tasty addition! I must admit I combined this recipe with one for oven roasted broccoli (as a way to cut costs since asparagus is over $5.00 here). since the broccoli recipe called for garlic, I used a garlic infused olive oil. I also also sprinkled the vegetables with some red pepper flakes before roasting. I also cut the roasting time back just a pinch...12 minutes gave us perfect tender-crisp veggies! I will definitely be making this again; using asparagus only when it is in peek season and the cost is down. Made and reviewed for the 56th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap."
"What can I say that hasn't been said except yummy! I love the parmesan touch at the end. It gave it a unique flavor that we loved."
"Quick and easy, great for a week night meal when you are in a hurry. Like the cheese."
"This is just one great recipe.
I made this tonight for dinner and it was just so easy to make and so delicious, the added Parmesan made for a great tasty side to our fish dinner.
I never had roasted asparagus before, but this is just so easy and I will be making this again.
"I made this a couple of nights ago for dinner and thought it was so good. I was hoping the addition of the parmesan would encourage the kids to like it too, but no such luck. I loved how the parmesan added a touch of salty flavor to the roasted asparagus, though and the recipe was incredibly easy! I actually roasted it at 400 degrees in a convection oven and it took about the same amount of time."
"What's not to love? Roasted asparagus is so delicious. Then add parmesan cheese? It brought the roasted asparagus to another level. Thank you!"
"What an easy and tasty recipe. Next time I will use less salt, but other than that...perfect!"
"This is one yummy recipe with so little ingredients. I forgot to add salt and pepper. But it was just perfect like that. With the parmesan cheese, it made the asparagus just salty enough. I cooked them longer cause I don't like when it's too crunchy. Thanks Mersaydees :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT"
"These are the best asparagus! I made mine in the toaster oven and they are sooooo good; thank you so much for for posting. Made these for ZWT6. Rita"
"The parmesan elevates this dish to a new level. I've long been roasting asparagus with a little olive oil and salt, but the parmesan really added something to this dish. Even my dd, who doesn't normally like asparagus, polished off her portion. Be sure to use good quality, freshly grated Parmesan, and watch the salt, as the cheese is salty. Our asparagus was fairly thin and the cooktime was perfect. Made for ZWT6--Whine and Cheese."
"What a great way to do asparagus! The baking time is just right if you like a slightly crunchy asparagus. The parmesan on top deepens the flavour and just makes it really yummy. I will for sure be making this again. Made by a fellow Unruly / ZWT6"
"Add a little white truffle oil too!"
"The parmesan cheese makes this different from the rest. Very good!"
"Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables especially the baby asparagus. This recipe really enhanced the flavor plus it was super easy to make. Since I used the soda straw sized baby asparagus, next time I will reduce the cooking time to 1/2. Made for Veg 'N Swap #17."
"I love asparagus and really thought this was a unique way to prepare it! We had this with Recipe #291496 . A great combination. Thanks for posting! Made for the November 2009 Aussie/NZ recipe swap."
"This my new favorite way to eat asparagus! Thanks, it was yummy!"
"I have always steamed my asparagus and it was always so bland tasting. I could never get my DD to eat it. Do you blame her! I made this last night to go with dinner and my DD couldn't get enough of it! YEAH! It was very good! DH and I loved it! We enjoyed the smokiness flavor from the olive oil. I will only make asparagus this way for now on. Thanks for sharing! Made for VIP Veggie Swap Oct. 2009"
"We loved this. It was an easy side dish. I followed the recipe as written. I could just have eaten this for dinner all about itself! Will be making again. Made for NZ/AUS recipe swap."
"Cooked to perfection, we loved the browned parmesan cheese on top. This was the perfect side to Recipe #282312 #282312. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us, Mersaydees! Made for May 2009 Veg*n Swap."
"Simply delicious! One of my favorite vegetables and this recipe is so good. I am going to be using this one a lot! My husband loves asparagus and couldn't get enough of this dish! Thanks for sharing."
