Recipe: Roasted Asparagus
I love to make roasted asparagus as a yummy side dish. It tastes so much better than boiled or sauteed asparagus. They become toasty and nutty flavored, even a little sweet. You can buy a HUGE bag of asparagus at Costco (when available) for about $3.50. I also get some good, thin asparagus at the Farmer's Market.
Put the asparagus in a pan, drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss and roast in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes. The time can vary based on the size of the vegetable - so keep an eye on it. You may want to toss them again, about halfway through cooking.
