Roasted asparagus with parmesan and garlic

These roasted asparagus are really special because they are sprinkled with parmesan and slightly perfumed with garlic! Cooking asparagus in the oven is quite original and it gives them a special, caramelized flavor that really suits them well and makes them very interesting! Just give them a try and you will see :-) It’s up to you!

Also available in different formats :-)

What’s the story behind this recipe?

I was very intrigued to see a recipe with roasted asparagus because I was used to eat them only steamed! Cooking them in the oven, it’s a splendid alternative and if you like, you can couple them with some of tzatziki light which is a Greek yogurt sauce with cucumber, dill and garlic! But be aware because the tzatziki is quite garlicky and it might cover the taste of the asparagus :-) Nevertheless, it’s a wonderful sauce and it really worth the try eating it with these asparagus!

Inspiration

This is a recipe coming from two Martha Stewart recipes, one with roasted garlicky asparagus and the other with roasted asparagus with parmesan.
