  1. I”m actually serving a mix of roasted veggie on Easter. Would you believe that my husband is not a fan of asparagus. That didn”t stop me from eating it. I agree with you on the growing asparagus part. I think it”s perennial but I have never grown it.

  2. Yum! This is my kind of recipe! You can never have too many good asparagus recipes and this looks like a winner. And thanks for the shout-out for my Roasted Asparagus with Soy Sesame Glaze.

  3. Pingback: This is the best roasted asparagus recipe EVER. I made this for my family at last years Easter dinner, and even my mother (who basically exists on ketchup and chicken) loved it. SO GOOD. - All Foods Drinks

  5. Yummy!!
    We like to put it on the BBQ brush it with olive oil and sea salt and cook till tender crisp. It is soo good cuz parts if it get blackened just a bit and the flavor is amazing

  6. Normally, I roast it or toss it on top with stove in olive oil with garlic and rosemary. I will be trying your recipe for Easter Sunday!

  7. You’ve done it again, and just in time! What a simple yet elegant recipe. And, I love reading about your collecting the Williams Sonoma cookbooks so inexpensively. Such a treat! Thanks for continuing to take the fear out of entertaining.

  8. That looks delicious! What a great addition for an Easter dinner.

  9. Ha!! I added my asparagus comment to your previous post…I think I’m tired. Well! I love roasting asparagus, but I also really like to do on my stove in some EVOO and butter with whatever seasonings sound yummy at the time.

  10. Just got back from a little trip and catching up on some of my favorite blogs- that asparagus is divine…..I think our Easter table will be serving some of that.
    Happy Day

  11. OH! I love this,asparagus and parmesan,delish!

  12. I’m making my Creamy Asparagus Puffs…so fast and easy but they look like they took a long time to make. I’m so happy when asparagus season is here and the prices are dropping! We love asparagus!

  13. I like roasted asparagras and haven’t tried the addition of parmesan cheese but I will. Often, when cooking for just the two of us I hate to turn on the oven for a handful of asparagras. I use a skillet, put in just a bit of olive oil, lay the asparagras out flat, add a crushed garlic clove and cook it about 10 minutes, shaking the pan the turn the asparagras from time to time. When it is nearly done I add a few strips of Meyer lemon zest. Since we have a tree full of them I always have some on the counter top ready to use.
