Check out this simple recipe for oven-roasted asparagus i found on AllRecipes.com. Baked with ingredients found in everyone's kitchen: olive oil, parmesan cheese, garlic, lemon and spice, it couldnt be easier. I'm adding a dash of Cayenne pepper for a little heat as well!
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Place the asparagus into a mixing bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat the spears, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving.
