In this garlic-Parmesan-crusted asparagus recipe, we combine Parmesan cheese, whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs and walnuts for a crispy topping that's baked over asparagus. Roasting the asparagus spears in a hot oven keeps them tender-crisp in this quick side dish! Source:, January 2020

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Combine oil, garlic, pepper and salt in a large bowl; add asparagus and massage to evenly coat. Spread the asparagus in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Toss Parmesan, panko and walnuts together in a small bowl; sprinkle over the asparagus. Roast until the panko is golden and the asparagus is tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
