"This is an easy, delicious way to cook asparagus. The light lemon flavor is lovely."
lemon juice, fresh
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.
