What You'll Need
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons shaved or grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place trimmed asparagus in a large sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Roll the asparagus around to coat each spear in oil, then spread the asparagus in a single layer. Roast until tender and lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes (10 to 12 minute if your asparagus is thick). Remove from the oven and drizzle with lemon juice and Parmesan.
  3. Meanwhile, boil the eggs, about 5 minutes for a large-size egg and 4 minutes for a medium-sized egg. Run the eggs under cool water to stop them from overcooking. Peel them and slice horizontally.
  4. Serve the eggs with the asparagus.
