The easiest, most delicious side dish ever. Great for holidays, parties, etc.


  1. Cut bitter root end off asparagus stalks. Lay asparagus stalks side by side on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over asparagus.
  2. With the palm of your hand, slightly roll asparagus back and forth until entire stalk is covered in olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast at 400 degrees for 5-10 minutes.

What a terrific recipe, so quick and easy to make. My dh loves thin, small green asparagus so this recipe is perfect for him. They roast up beautifully, crisp yet still tender. Thanks so much for sharing.
