  • Summary

    *Note:* My asparagus was quite thick, and it took 10 minutes to roast, but I like mine still a bit crisp. If your asparagus is really skinny, or you like it a little more well done you may have to adjust the roasting time accordingly. Also, the bright lemon flavour really shines through in this recipe, so if you just want a hint of lemon instead, reduce the lemon juice/zest to half a lemon.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound (450 g) asparagus spears
    • 1 lemon, juice and zest
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
