  • 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.
