I didn’t have fresh asparagus until I was in my 20’s.  

Growing up my Mom made canned asparagus and I loved it.  I was really hesitant to try fresh, but once I did… I’ve never gone back.  

And now that I’ve had this Oven Roasted Garlic Parmesan Asparagus I don’t know if I’ll want to make it any other way!

Oven roasted asparagus can be served with so many different entrees such as:

Honestly, the options are endless.  

When I made this recipe I had it on the counter when my son got home from school so I asked him to try it so he could give me his very honest opinion 😉   Before I knew it we’d polished off almost the entire pound of asparagus… that’s how good it is!

It was a light bulb moment that this Oven Roasted Garlic Parmesan Asparagus would also make a fantastic after school snack!

I love finding fruits or veggies that my kids love so I can help them develop a natural taste and desire for healthy and wholesome foods.  

Raising healthy eaters is really important to me, so when he loved this recipe I had a proud Mom moment if I’m honest!

Close up of Oven Roasted Garlic Parmesan AsparagusHow to store Asparagus?

Years ago someone told me to put the asparagus with the woody part in a cup filled with water and store it in the fridge.  Storing it in the water keeps it fresher longer.  Since then I’ve stored my fresh asparagus that way and been very happy with my results.  Have you ever heard of that tip before?

I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe!  If you do, I’d love for you to share it on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest!

      This recipe is so good. I think the garlic is what I was missing before.
