Units Scale
  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (218°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Wash the asparagus and pat dry. Trim off the tough ends of the asparagus by snapping them off with your fingers or using a sharp knife.
  3. Arrange the asparagus on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle the asparagus with melted butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  4. Roast the asparagus in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the spears. The asparagus should be tender and lightly browned on the outside when done.
  5. Remove the asparagus from the oven and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top of the spears. Return the baking sheet to the oven and roast for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Remove the asparagus from the oven and transfer to a serving platter. Serve immediately.


Substitute olive oil or avocado oil for butter, if preferred. Add in your favorite spices like parsley or garlic.
