Roasting gives asparagus such a sublime depth of flavor that it only needs simple seasoning.

Serves 4

What You Need:

  • 1 1/2 pounds thick asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss asparagus with olive oil and arrange in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Roast until just tender, about 10 minutes. (The timing will vary depending on the thickness of the asparagus.) Remove from oven and transfer to a shallow serving platter.
