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.

Baked Asparagus with Parmesan Recipe
- 1 pound asparagus
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup loosely packed (about 1.5 ounces or 40g) grated parmesan cheese, or to taste
1 Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Break or cut off the woody ends of the asparagus spears. For an added touch, if you want you can use a vegetable peeler to peel the skins off the base of the asparagus spears for a more elegant presentation.
2 Arrange the asparagus spears on a foil-lined baking sheet and coat with the olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and the parmesan. Bake until the cheese begins to brown, about 8-10 minutes.
