Roasted Asparagus

Here's a great veggie to make in the winter while there's 7+ inches of snow covering the grill on your back deck.  Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies and this is a super easy, delicious way to prepare it in the oven.

I've been dreaming of Spring lately. Clear blue skies....warmer weather and nice walks outside to get some fresh air and vitamin D from the sun. Once the weather warms up, this is also a great way to prepare asparagus and throw it on your grill.

Roasted Asparagus

  • Asparagus, as much as will fit on your rimmed baking dish
  • Sea Salt, to taste
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • Olive Oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking dish with tin foil or parchment paper.
  3. Snap the cut ends off all the asparagus and place on the baking dish in a relatively single layer.
  4. Drizzle lightly with olive oil. 
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss with a spatula just to evenly coat all the asparagus.
  6. Put in the preheated oven and roast for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your asparagus. 
  7. Remove from pan and serve immediately.
