Garlic Parmesan Oven Roasted Asparagus recipe

 

Before life got turned upside down my Dad came to visit us every couple of months.  Since the twins’ birth, we’ve always been tied to the house for dinners and he’d always cook for us at least once while he was here.  I always really looked forward to that night because I didn’t have to cook AND he makes really good food.  His signature dish is a fabulous salmon and he recently started also making a super really easy oven asparagus recipe.  I’d always made my asparagus on the stovetop but LOVED the idea of popping it in the oven.  So I got the details from my Dad and this is actually HIS Garlic Parmesan Oven Roasted Asparagus recipe.  It really is THE BEST!

Thanks, Pops!

  2. It’s crazy easy to make.
  3. Cooking the asparagus in the oven means less hands-off time in the kitchen.

The Best Garlic Parmesan Asparagus

The trick to making this the best Garlic Parmesan Asparagus is garlic salt and parmesan.  Those two flavors really make this roasted asparagus pop.  You could use fresh garlic BUT I actually love the flavor of garlic salt and how it can be evenly sprinkled over the entire dish.

The parmesan is also the perfect addition and the nutty cheese pairs perfectly with the earthy green asparagus.  I love the way the cheese browns in this Garlic Parmesan Oven Roasted Asparagus recipe on the pan and around the individual asparagus spears.

Plus roasting is so much butter than sauteing because it really brings out the flavors and it gets a little crispy.  And no one wants soggy asparagus… right?

How to Roast Asparagus in the oven…

Curious how to roast asparagus in the oven?

Start off with prepping the asparagus.  The ends can be tough and woody so break off that part.  It should easily snap at the point it changes to be more tender and edible.

Roasting the asparagus is super simple…

  1. Toss the asparagus in the olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper.
  2. Add the cheese on top.
  3. Pop in the oven and cook until fork-tender.

If you are feeling extra fancy you could drizzle a little lemon the asparagus when it comes out of the oven.

Thin asparagus should only take about 10 minutes but thicker asparagus could take closer to 15 minutes.  It’s a fast and easy side dish to make.
