1 lb. moderately thick asparagus spears
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, very finely minced
2 Tbsp. grated fresh pecorino Romano cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Trim the asparagus spears by snapping off the tough ends. Place the asparagus spears in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  2. Drizzle the asparagus with the olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle with the garlic. Roast the asparagus for 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese and roast for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese melts and the asparagus is cooked but still crisp. Allow the asparagus to cool a bit before serving.
