Roasted Asparagus is one of the simplest vegetable dishes to make. You get so much in return for such little effort. I suggest giving it a try.
Thoroughly wash 1 – 2 bunches of asparagus. 2 bunches will serve 8. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
Cut about ½ – 1 inch off the bottom of the asparagus stalk.
Spread out the asparagus on a baking sheet.
Generously sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and pop into the preheated oven at 400° F. Roast for 15 – 20 minutes.
Look at that! The asparagus tips have a nice crispiness to them and the stalks are tender.
Plate and serve. A little squeeze of fresh lemon juice is optional.
