Best Vegetable Side Dish. We love the way the salty-sweet browned butter highlights the asparagus in this dish. --Recipe by David Bonom (September 2001)

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 5 spears)

Ingredients

  • 40 asparagus spears, trimmed (about 2 pounds)

  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • Cracked black pepper (optional)
  • Grated lemon rind (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.
