DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350° with rack placed in the center position.
  • Place asparagus in a brown paper bag large enough to hold the asparagus comfortably.
  • Drizzle with oil to prevent the bag from burning.
  • Add the lemon slices and bay leaf; season with salt and pepper.
  • Close the bag by folding it over several times and creasing the folds well to retain the steam in the bag.
  • Place bag on a baking sheet, and drizzle with more olive oil.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Shake bag a few times before carefully opening; transfer asparagus to platter.
  • Drizzle with more oil; serve immediately.
