Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

We ended up with another big bunch of asparagus from the garden, and it just so happens that I had another recipe that I wanted to try.

I’m sure I go through more Dijon mustard than the average person, but it seems to work well with so many things.  It helps make this recipe really delicious.

Parmesan Asparagus

Parmesan Roasted Asparagus


  • Bunch of fresh asparagus
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Dijon mustard
  • Granulated garlic powder
  • Ground black pepper
  • Tony Chachere original seasoning
  • Grated Parmesan


  1. Peel stalks of asparagus, if tough (with potato peeler). Cut into pieces. I usually make diagonal cuts.
  2. Place them in a bowl and toss with the next 5 ingredients. Use the proportions that you like. I usually use a couple tablespoons of dijon, and I'm heavy handed with garlic.
  3. Let mixture sit for a half hour, if you have time.
  4. Heat oven to 400.
  5. Place asparagus in baking dish. Sprinkle generously with parmesan.
  6. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until it's done enough for you. Baking times will depend on the size of the pieces and how stacked together they are. I used a smaller baking pan and they were about an inch deep.
