  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray, line it with parchment paper, and set aside.
  • Break off the tough ends of the asparagus.
  • Arrange the asparagus on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Drizzle with olive oil, and toss well. Use a pastry brush (basting brush) if necessary to coat each asparagus spear.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper and dried oregano.
  • Roast the asparagus for 10-12 minutes or until crisp-tender. Season with Parmesan cheese and lemon wedges.


  • You can snap off the tough ends as they'll naturally break at the woody part. Alternatively, you can snap one off and use it as a guide on where to cut the rest of the asparagus. 
  • Make sure you do not pack the asparagus too tightly together on the sheet pan as they'll steam instead of roast in the oven.
  • Always wash and dry the asparagus thoroughly before roasting.
  • To store: Store the roasted asparagus in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. 
  • To reheat: You can reheat leftovers in the oven or microwave. 
  • To freeze: Place the cooked asparagus in a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 2-3 months.
