DIRECTIONS

  • To cook asparagus: Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Break off woody stems of asparagus.
  • If stalks are thick, peel with a vegetable peeler, pulling from stem end toward tip.
  • (Pencil-thin spears do no need peeling.) Place in a greased or sprayed 9x13 inch glass baking dish.
  • Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Dot with margarine.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until tender but still crisp.
  • (Asparagus may be baked 1 day ahead and reheated in microwave.) To make topping: In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • (Topping may be refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before using.)
  • Before serving: Spoon topping over asparagus and sprinkle with walnuts.
