Sometimes, simple is best.  That’s definitely how I feel about asparagus.  I think those beautiful long spears are without a doubt, most flavorful when it’s roasted.

I love how the tips get a little brown and crunchy but the middle is still tender.  With just a few other ingredients and a really hot oven, you’ve got a delicious side dish in under 15 minutes, but here’s fair warning, you better make a big batch…they tend to get snagged before dinner is served.
