Roasted asparagus picks up a bit of crisp texture from the oven, but gets even more of it when topped with earthy almonds.
Preheat oven to 450°.
Place asparagus on a baking sheet; drizzle with oil. Bake at 450° for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring once after 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and almonds.
