This is an easy, delicious way to cook asparagus. The light lemon flavor is lovely.
- 1 lb asparagus
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Prepare asparagus. First rinse thoroughly and cut off fibrous ends. To do this, pull one spear out of the bunch. Gently bend the spear until it snaps. Then cut the remaining spears at the same length as the first.
- Arrange asparagus in a baking pan with all spears in one layer.
- Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and toss within baking pan to combine. Rearrange into one layer.
- Roast for 12-15 minutes or until crisp-tender.

This couldn't be easier, and yields a tasty version of roasted asparagus. The lemon really makes the flavor pop. I roasted the asparagus for 12 minutes, then tossed them around a bit, and put them back in for another 3 minutes. Perfect! Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
