fresh cracked black pepper

1 tbsp dried parsley

1 tsp dried oregano

3 oz shaved Parmesan cheese thicker shave


  1. Preheat oven to 425° and lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet that’s big enough to fit asparagus in one even layer.
  2. Wash, dry, and trim thick light ends off asparagus. 
  3. Spread asparagus in the baking sheet, drizzle it with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Peel and press garlic cloves and then rub asparagus with pressed garlic, spreading olive oil and seasoning at the same time. 
  5. Lay out coated asparagus in one even layer but close enough together so the cheese can be spread on top evenly.
  6. Spread shaved Parmesan cheese over asparagus and bake for 10-12 minutes.
