The best roasted asparagus!
Growing up the only asparagus we had was from a can. It wasn’t until I was at someone’s wedding and they had tender fresh asparagus and people where talking about how amazing it was.
Asparagus? Amazing? I had my doubts, but I gave it a try and have never looked back.
Asparagus cooked correctly is so good, asparagus roasted is even better.
After making herbed bread crumbs last week and using them on practically everything, I decided to make an Herb and Parmesan Roasted Asparagus.
Tender asparagus with crispy, herby, cheesy bread crumbs!! So much yes!
Parmesan Cheese – buy the wedges and grate it yourself. So much better!
Butter – just a little adds plenty of richness or you could use all olive oil.
Olive oil – I like to use a blend of olive oil and butter with asparagus.
Asparagus – try to find thin if you can.
Herbed bread crumbs – recipe linked below in directions. Can also use plain bread crumbs.
Preheat oven to 425.
Wash asparagus and trim off the tough ends.
Tip – if you grasp the asparagus with one hand in the middle and one hand at the stem end and bend it until it breaks, it will snap off at the perfect point for trimming!
Place the asparagus on a baking sheet.
Grate parmesan cheese.
Prepare herbed bread crumbs if you haven’t already or use plain.
The herbed bread crumbs recipe makes more than you need for this recipe – try our Herb Crusted Tilapia – so easy and so good!
Melt the butter (I use a microwave for about 10 seconds.)
Drizzle the asparagus with the olive oil and the melted butter.
Spread the asparagus out and sprinkle with the bread crumbs and the parmesan cheese. Turn to coat.
Roast for 7-11 minutes – depending on how thick your asparagus is.
Just look at the photo! I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how amazing this asparagus was!! Tender on the inside, crisp and cheesy on the outside!
