Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower 

We love cauliflower in our house and this is such an easy weeknight side dish.  It’s lightly browned, caramelized, and cheesy!

Toss the sliced cauliflower in butter.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Place in a 400 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese (I was obviously a little heavy handed with my cheese measurements!).

Add the chopped parsley to the cauliflower and roast it in the oven again for about 5-10 minutes or until the cheese melts and it forms a light brown crust.

Remove from the oven and serve it immediately.


1 head cauliflower; cut into florets
2 tablespoons melted butter
Pinch of salt
3 light dashes of ground black pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon chopped parsley leaves


Toss the sliced cauliflower with the butter. Season with salt and black pepper. Place the cauliflower in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Roast until almost tender about 20-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the grated Parmesan and chopped parsley leaves on top of the cauliflower.  Roast again until the cheese melts and slightly crusty, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Roasted Lemon Parmesan Asparagus 

This simple roasted asparagus dish with fresh lemon juice, garlic, and parmesan has quickly become our favorite way to prepare asparagus!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line the asparagus in a single layer on your prepped baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.  I roll the spears around on the baking sheet to make sure they’re evenly coated.

Bake for 10-15 minutes.  Immediately top with garlic and fresh lemon juice and toss to combine.

Garnish with parmesan cheese and serve!  It’s really that simple and it’s really that delicious!


1 pound asparagus, trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 cloves garlic, pressed
Juice of 1/2 lemon, or more, to taste
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan, or more, to taste (No judgement for using more cheese!)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil or spray with non-stick spray.
Place asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste; gently toss to combine. Place into oven and roast for 10-15 minutes, or until tender but crisp.
Serve immediately, tossed with garlic, lemon juice and Parmesan.
