I made this last night as written with garden fresh asparagus. Unfortunately someone rang just as I was to take it out of the oven, so it went over about 5 minutes and the ends burnt. I WAS SO MAD as it was just one of those sales calls and they made me mess up my beautiful asparagus! But with all that said it came a little overcooked but absolutely delicious. I will be making this again soon, even though it was overcooked and still tasted wonderful it can only be scrumptious perfectly cooked!Can't wait! This is a must try for any asparagus lover!

Daily Inspiration

We absolutely love roasted asparagus and this recipe was wonderful. The only change I made was to roast the asparagus in olive oil, salt and pepper and then half way through the cooking process, I added the lemon slices, juice and garlic so the garlic wouldn't burn. Soooo good.

Great way to fix asparagus! I had to sub shredded Mexican cheese for the parmesan. The lemon really added some zip!
