This roasted asparagus is the perfect spring side dish.
Cost $.54 per serving
- 1 lb asparagus
- 1 tbs olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbs balsamic vinegar or lemon juice optional
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Trim the tough bottom part off the asparagus spears. Place the asparagus in a baking dish large enough to make a single layer.
Pour the olive oil over the asparagus and spread it around with your hands to cover evenly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook for 18 to 20 minutes, or until just tender. If you’re using very thin asparagus spears, they'll be done sooner.
Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar or lemon juice if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature.
