Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
1 pound asparagus, trimmed
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Snap or cut the dry stem ends off each asparagus and place on a heavy baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss. Roast until the asparagus is tender, about 15 minutes. Cool slightly and serve warm or at room temperature. I have modified this recipe to my taste as follows: Kosher salt only to taste (I am not a pepper person).
Asparagus season is April-May here in Kentucky. Besides making a wonderful side dish, this recipe also makes a nice addition to salads. You just can't beat the flavor of roasted Asparagus.
