Oven Roasted Asparagus

I LOVE asparagus! I even own an asparagus cooking pot, but I found this recipe a few years ago and it is my very favorite way to cook it. It has such a great-almost smokey flavor and the high oven heat really intensifies the flavor. It is VERY quick and easy. Give it a try now that spring asparagus is showing up in the stores. Line a cookie sheet with foil and line up the asparagas.
I love how it keeps it's bright green color after being roasted.

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Prepare 1 bunch of medium-thick asparagus by rinsing and snapping off tough bottoms. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss asparagus with 2 tsp olive oil; season with coarse salt and ground pepper.

Roast until tender; 7-10 minutes (depending on thickness)

I'm the only one in the house who'll eat asparagus. I have it for lunch when no one else is around. I'm definitely trying this method soon.
