Ingredients
  • 1 pound of asparagus
Instructions
  1. First, wash the asparagus in cold water and trim away the lower ¼ of the stalk. Toss the asparagus in a large bowl with ½ T of oil and ½ T chopped garlic. Add kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to your tasting. Roast at 425°F on a foil-covered baking sheet until stalks are soft and the skin is crispy. Turn the stalks at 10 minutes of roasting time.
  2. Add your own touch of love-
  3. Cutting thin rings of red bell pepper to roast on top of the asparagus will offer a feast of flavor for your pallet and a feast of color for your eyes! Top your cooked asparagus with a sprinkle of fresh lemon juice. Serves 4.
