Fresh roasted asparagus is one of the season's best side dishes. A few simple ingredients like garlic, lemon and olive oil really go a long way for adding flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Snap off and discard tough ends of asparagus; place asparagus on a lightly greased baking sheet. Whisk together remaining ingredients; drizzle mixture over asparagus, tossing to coat.

  2. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or to desired degree of tenderness, turning once after 8 minutes.
