Preheat oven to 425F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.

Rinse the asparagus and trim off woody end pieces. Spread out in a thin layer on top of the prepared cookie sheet.

Coat the asparagus lightly with a olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic, and parmesan cheese. Use your hands to mix the asparagus with all of the ingredients, then lay out into an even layer again. Lightly drizzle with oil once more.
