● 1 lb. fresh asparagus, cleaned & trimmed

● 2 T. olive oil

● kosher salt & black pepper

● Parmesan cheese

● juice of 1/2 lemon

Preheat oven to 400 ̊F.

3. Place the asparagus in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. With tongs, move the asparagus around in the pan. Depending on the thickness of the spears, continue roasting for 3-10 minutes more.
