Snap off tough ends of asparagus; remove scales with a knife or vegetable peeler, if desired. Set aside.
Rub cut sides of garlic over a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; place garlic in dish. Add asparagus; drizzle with oil. Sprinkle asparagus with salt, thyme, and pepper; toss gently. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes, stirring once.
Excellent and easy! Received lots of raves from husband, teenager, and mother. Added a few pieces of thinly sliced garlic but not sure how much of a difference it made. Cooking time will depend on thickness of spears so check early. Served for Easter with Crown Roast of Pork and Apple and Sausage Stuffing.
