I wouldn't say that this is a recipe at all. It's so simple but tasty and gives you another idea for asparagus.

  • ½ kilo asparagus
  • 2 tbsp finely grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon wedges optional
  • 1-2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 dl finely grated parmesan
  • olive oil for drizzling


  • Preheat the oven to 200C or 400F
  • Line an oven tray large enough to hold all the asparagus in one layer with aluminum foil. This will make clean up easier.
  • Wash, dry and trim off the woody ends of the asparagus.
  • With a brush, brush all the asparagus with the olive oil. Place the asparagus on the tray, salt and pepper them.
  • Roast in the top third of the oven for 10 to 15 minutes - This depends on how thick the asparagus are. Medium ones should take about 12 minutes. Check as they roast.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle over the cheese and return to the oven just long enough to let the cheese melt.
  • Place on a serving plate with a little extra olive oil drizzled over them, sprinkle over the parsley and a few wedges of lemon if you like.


This is super easy and quick! I use the parsley because it really helps to brighten up the presentation. You can serve this as an appetizer or a vegetable with the main course. You can also use them cut into smaller pieces for a salad.
