There are several things that I make quite frequently and my husband always asks if they are on my blog. Most often I reply by saying no honey, these aren’t really recipes. They are boring. He disagrees and always thinks I should post them. And, you know what? He’s right. I should post the simple, tried and true recipes. Here’s one example. Roasted asparagus is great because the asparagus stays nice and crisp. They also have wonderful flavor from the roasting. In my opinion they are best served with lemon slices. Lemon and asparagus is delicious.
1 lb Asparagus, dry ends trimmed off
extra virgin olive oil
lemon slices, for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place asparagus on the baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Roast for 15 minutes, turning halfway through. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the asparagus and serve immediately.
