Ingredients

  • 1 lb asparagus spears woody ends cut off
  • Lemon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • ¼- ½ cup grated parmesan cheese green container

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut off the tough woody ends on the asparagus and place on the baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle with lemon olive oil (if you don't have lemon, use regular olive oil), then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Take the ends of the parchment paper and pull them up together (so the asparagus gets coated with the salt, pepper and olive oil, or roll them around in the oil), then lay paper back flat on baking sheet and spread spears back out evenly.
  5. Bake for approximately 9-10 minutes when using the thinner spears about 14 minutes with the thicker spears.
  6. After 9-10 minutes, remove from oven, squeeze lemon juice lightly oven asparagus and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  7. Place back in the oven and bake for 4-5 additional minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and serve right away.
