Roasted asparagus could not be easier or more elegant. I make this as a side dish or even as a starter. They are great served at any temperature.

Roasted Asparagus with Lemon  

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound thin asparagus
  • half of a lemon, juiced
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt & fresh pepper

Assembly:

Broil in the oven about 5 minutes or until bright green. Asparagus is done when just limp when you pick them up by the ends. I prefer them al dente.
