Roasting lends a sweetness to asparagus that you don't get by boiling or steaming.
Make and share this Roasted Asparagus With Olive Oil recipe from Food.com.
- Preheat oven to 450°F Snap off tough ends and place on a shallow rimmed baking sheet large enough to hold in a single layer:.
- Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.
- Toss the asparagus, making sure that each spear is coated with oil. Bake until the spears are lightly browned and tender, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
Another great way to cook one of my favorite vegetables. Great flavor and texture, served with Simple Crock Pot Chicken and Potatoes. Made for *Fall 2008 PAC* Thanks!
Very good and simple to make. Followed the recipe exactly as written other then I cooked mine on the grill and I didn't measure my olive oil, I just drizzled it on. Everyone enjoyed this side dish. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
