  • Snap off the tough stem ends from the asparagus spears and arrange the spears on a baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, garlic and lemon zest.
  • Brush the asparagus evenly with the oil, turning the spears to coat well, and season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the lemon wedges around the asparagus.
  • Bake until the asparagus is tender and just turning golden, 6 to 8 minutes.
