  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Spray the inside of a 9x13 casserole dish with olive oil cooking spray. Place asparagus in the dish and lightly spray spears with cooking spray.
  3. Sprinkle asparagus with Parmesan cheese, sea salt, and garlic powder.
  4. Roast in preheated oven until fork easily punctures thickest part of stem, about 12 minutes.


  • Cook's note:
  • The best way to keep fresh asparagus for a long while in the refrigerator is to slice off the stems and then stand them in a bowl with a couple of inches of water in the bottom. It keeps for a very long time this way. Add water as necessary.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

These are delicious; you can really make people fight over asparagus! Roasted asparagus is one of my all time favorites. But the flavor is greatly enhanced by allowing the stalks to caramelize ...

I used olive oil rather than the cooking spray and set my oven timer for 10 minutes - when it came out of the oven I was discouraged. Uh-oh, I thought. Hubs will never go for this shriveled up,...

A wonderful side dish that is simple to make. In a separate nonstick pan, sautéed 1/3 cup pine nuts until golden, about 4 minutes. Used them to garnish the roasted asparagus along with a touch o...

delicious and this is coming from someone who thought she hated asparagus

I spent the first 72 years of my life not wanting to even try asparagus, now I want to shoot myself for not trying it sooner. Thanks Diane, it was delicious

This is a really simple and easy dish to make. If you have a small convection oven like I do, you can just make it in there instead. I basically just folded aluminum foil into a small version of...
