Roasted Parmesan Asparagus

Roasted Parmesan Asparagus
Christopher Mohs

I’m always looking for quick and easy, yet yummy vegetable sides to accompany my meals. This dish has the added benefit of being a great option for a party hors d’oeuvre as well. Served hot or cold, it’s a versatile side dish that takes that wonderful asparagus flavor and elevates it with a simple seasoning of salt and better and a finish of grated parmesan cheese.


Christopher Mohs Signature

Roasted Parmesan Asparagus


  • 1 pound of fresh asparagus spears
  • 2 tbsp of grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash asparagus and cut off the bottom half inch of the stem. Spread out on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 10-12 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with grated parmesan. Serve hot as a side dish right away, or chill in the fridge and serve as an hors-d’oeuvre at a party.
