The Simple Things in Life

Roasted Asparagus

Alright I have a confession to make, I am obsessed with asparagus. My favorite way to cook asparagus is to roast it, getting those green stalks good and crispy. Medium sized asparagus works best for roasting as it shrinks while roasting. Works great as a side dish to pork tenderloin, roasted chicken and even in a nice pasta dish. Or, as I eat them...alone. No hollandaise necessary, as some of the best dishes utilize the simplest ingredients.

Roasted Asparagus Recipe

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

1 pound asparagus, medium
Garlic Salt
Kosher salt
Fresh ground pepper
Good olive oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Break off the tough ends of the asparagus. Place asparagus evenly on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and roll around to make sure all of the asparagus is covered. Sprinkle asparagus liberally with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the garlic salt only on the tips of the asparagus (this is the key to perfection).

Cook for 25 minutes until asparagus is crispy. Serve immediately.
