Easy Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Tips:
- 1 bunch is usually 1 pound.
- To trim the asparagus, bend towards the bottom of the stalk, it will naturally break where the more tender part of the spear meets the woody stiff end.
- Make sure to spread them evenly apart on the baking sheet for even baking.
- You can adjust the baking time depending on how crisp or soft you like asparagus.
- If you prefer crispier parmesan cheese you can broil it at the end instead of just placing it in the oven at the same temperature the asparagus was baked at.
How to Store Easy Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan:
Store: Keep the asparagus refrigerated for up to 4 days.
REHEAT: In the oven or a toaster oven at 450 degrees F for 4-5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Rinse and dry the asparagus. Bend the bottom to break off the stiff ends. Spread the asparagus out in one layer on the baking sheet. Coat with olive oil and melted butter. Sprinkle on the salt and pepper. Drizzle on the lemon juice.
