  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese (1 ounce)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
