Preheat oven to 450 F. Lightly coat a shallow nonstick baking pan with cooking spray.

Place the asparagus in a single layer in the pan. Turn each spear to coat all sides with cooking spray. Bake until tender but still crisp, 8 to 10 minutes, turning each spear once.

Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients and toast on a small baking sheet for 1 to 2 minutes in a toaster oven (or 375 F. oven) until golden brown. Stir once to ensure even toasting.

Place baked asparagus on a serving plate and sprinkle with lemon bread crumbs.
