How to Bake Asparagus
You can make this oven roasted asparagus on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet, however I much prefer cooking it in my cast iron skillet. If you do not have one in your kitchen, I totally recommend getting one. They are seriously the best thing ever in the kitchen!
How to Trim Asparagus
Rinse the asparagus under cool water.
Bend one of the asparagus pieces until the bottom snaps off. This is how you figure out what is the woody and that needs to be cut off. You can break off each end of each spear or you can lay the piece down on top of the rest of the bunch of asparagus and chop off about that same amount.
Toss the asparagus ends and cook the spears.
Parmesan Asparagus Ingredients
- olive oil or coconut oil
- kosher salt

How to Make Parmesan Asparagus
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with tin foil. If you are using a cast iron skillet to cook them, you do not need to line it with foil.
Wash the asparagus and trim off the bottom edges.
Place the asparagus in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Drizzle olive oil on top of asparagus, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place baking sheet in the oven and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove the asparagus from the oven, sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top of the asparagus and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
