Easy Oven Roasted Asparagus

 I love this Easy Oven Roasted Asparagus! It’s a wonderful side dish to accompany any meal, whether it’s simple or gourmet.

There are so many variations on how to cook asparagus, but have you ever tried making asparagus in the oven?

Here is  my version of a quick and easy, yet very upscale way to oven roast asparagus; you’ll impress everyone with this dish.

When you roast the asparagus, it brings out a delicious unique depth of flavor. The Parmesan cheese gets all wonderfully crisp on the edges, and the squeeze of lemon at the end brightens the entire dish.

You will really enjoy serving this Easy Oven Roasted Asparagus for special occasions and every day meals. 

If you want a twist on asparagus, one of my favorites is this Risotto with Asparagus and Mushroom [1] – delish!

Easy Oven Roasted Asparagus


2 bunches of asparagus, trimmed

3 Tbl. olive oil

2 tsp. garlic, minced

½ tsp. salt

1 tsp. Montreal Steak Seasoning

1 Tbl. balsamic vinegar

½ cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated

2 Tbl. lemon juice


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Line a baking sheet or jelly roll pan with foil and coat with spray release.

In a large bowl add the trimmed asparagus, olive oil, garlic, salt, Montreal seasoning and balsamic vinegar.

Gently turn over the asparagus to coat well.
Lay the asparagus onto the foil in an even layer.

Pour any of the olive oil mixture onto the asparagus.

Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the top of the asparagus.Bake for 8-15 minutes; depending on the thickness of the asparagus.

When a toothpick will insert into the spears with just a little resistance they are done.

Remove from oven and sprinkle with the lemon juice. Serve.
