  • Lemon
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place asparagus on a baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, a sprinkling of salt, and freshly cracked black pepper, then toss to evenly coat.  Arrange the asparagus in a single layer.
  3. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the asparagus are browned, but not flimsy or overcooked.  Transfer to a serving dish. Squeeze a lemon and a grating of Parmesan cheese, if using, over the hot asparagus.
