Roasted Asparagus With Olive Oil

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

Roasting lends a sweetness to asparagus that you don't get by boiling or steaming.


  1. 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:.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.
  3. 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.

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.
