I took my favorite Parmesan Roasted Potatoes and switched out the spuds for some gorgeous green spears. The best part was that it was such a simple side dish, it was ready in less than 15 minutes!

And I may or may not have devoured the entire tray all by myself…

Ok, not the whole tray… just 80% of it.

I can’t help but fall in love with Spring time more and more every year. It’s because I find all sorts of new ways to enjoy fresh produce like asparagus. My kids love asparagus too, so it’s really a no brainer for us.

This asparagus was actually the first thing I cooked in my new wall oven! I still don’t have a kitchen sink though, so I cleverly made this side dish with as few dishes as possible. I just combined all the ingredients in a zip close bag, shook it up and roasted it on my baking sheet. If you cover your baking sheet with tinfoil, there are virtually no dishes to clean up!

Ummm… can you guys agree with me that those little browned parmesan crispies are like the best thing ever?


Some things to think about when making this delicious side dish:

  • If you don’t mind doing the extra dishes, you can definitely use a bowl to toss your asparagus in.
  • Spread out your asparagus to give them room so they roast evenly
  • Enjoy the asparagus right away for ultimate taste and texture
  • If you’re trying to avoid gluten, simply omit the breadcrumbs

    I love asparagus anyway, but this is my all time favorite yet to prepare it! It’s so easy and doesn’t take long. I omit the breadcrumbs though because I do not like the taste.

    This was maybe the most delicious asparagus I have ever eaten. My husband and I ate all of it because we just couldn’t stop. Even my 5 year old ate some. So simple but sooo good!!

    Hey…this is good stuff! I used almond flour instead of bread crumbs…..almond meal would be better, but I didn’t have any and he can’t have bread anymore…and….he hates asparagus….he ate 4 HUGE spears! SCORE! Thanks for sharing a very tasty recipe! Happy day!

    This recipe was delicious! So easy to make! My only suggestion is instead of wasting a ziplock baggie to mix the asparagus and olive oil, I used a silicone basting brush and brushed on the olive oil after arranging the asparagus onto the cookie sheet. Ziplocks are expensive and add to our landfills. A basting brush can be washed over and over again.

    i am a ww member so I was wondering if it would be possible for you to include the nutritional values of your recipes also I have tried this recipe and it was awesome

    Please skip the plastic bag and mix right in the roasting pan. You get your hands a little greasy but hey, the olive oil is good for your skin. Single use plastics do not get recycled and are not biodegradable. Thank you.

    This recipe has been around for years. You can also do it with several veggies & add red pepper flakes. Good but nothing new really.
