This easy baked Parmesan asparagus recipe is ready in 15 minutes. It is a great side dish recipe that's on the table fast.

Olive oil, fresh lemon juice and garlic powder is combined, then drizzled over fresh asparagus spears. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and bake in the oven until asparagus is crisp-tender and cheese is melty and browned. Delicious!

  • If you don't have parchment paper to line the baking sheet, use aluminum foil.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine the olive oil, lemon juice and garlic powder.
  2. Put the asparagus on a baking sheet that's been oiled with olive oil or covered with parchment paper. Lay the asparagus in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Drizzle the olive oil mixture over the asparagus. Top with the grated cheese.
  4. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for about 8 to 10 minutes.
