Baked Asparagus with Parmesan

Print

Are you ready for asparagus season? This has to be one of the easiest ways to cook asparagus. Just trim the ends, lay out on a foil lined baking sheet, toss with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and Parm, and then bake until done. I eat them like French fries. Addictive? Yes.

They’re a perfect side to salmon, scallops, shrimp, or ham and delicious with eggs of any kind—poached, fried, or hard boiled.

    This is a great recipe that we all love. However, it should not be tagged as vegetarian. Parmesan cheese is not vegetarian.

    Yummy I also added infused garlic oil to the mix. My husband who would NEVER eat “ditch weed” loves it.

    Myhusband never liked asparagus until we baked it with olive oil and parmesan cheese. Now he will eat it every time we make it.

    I thought I was the only one who ate them like french fries! Try as I might I just can’t eat them with a fork – or eat just a few. Seriously – they’re just as addictive but so much better for you! Thanks for the confirmation – and the recipe.
