Roasted Asparagus

On several occasions while in the check out line at the grocery store, the check out lady will ask me "How do you fix your asparagus?"

Me: "It is so easy!"

Here is how I do it.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

First I rinse off the asparagus then snap off the ends. Then put the asparagus into a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. (I use a generous amount of salt and pepper). Mix with your hands until all spears are coated equally with oil, salt and pepper. Then spread the asparagus evenly on a sheet pan. (notice the photo above)  Bake in oven approx. 10 minutes.

Sometimes I prefer it to be more crispy so I leave it in a little longer or if I prefer it to be more raw I leave it in less time. Each time I do it , it depends on my mood how I roast it, so just play around with this until you figure out your preference.  Either way it is so simple and easy!

  1. I always make mine in a skillet with oil, salt and pepper, so I need to try them in the oven! Thanks for linking up!
