Roasted Asparagus

Preheat your oven to 450.
Get your asparagus ready - trim the ends, peel if they're fat - and lay them on a roasting pan. Drizzle them with some extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle a bit of salt on top. Now roast them for 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve with lemon wedges.

This is my favorite way to cook asparagus. I'm really into roasting veggies lately. Cauliflower is amazing roasted!

I TRY to like asparagus. My mom roasts it and does the vinaigrette thing too. I try it--and I'm all, "Nope. Still don't like it." Maybe it will be like I tell my kids, and I'll like it when I'm older.

I'm ashamed to admit this but...I have actually never had asparagus. It's the look of it -- scary. Plus I find restaurants usually serve it steamed, so it arrives limp and flourescent green like the fingers of dead aliens. Eeek.

However! Inspired by this post I went out and bought some asparagus on the weekend and roasted it this evening as per your instructions. And...happy ending! I had to kind of force myself to try it, but once I did, I could not get enough. I made the whole bundle, but of course, no one else in the family would even try it...so I ate it ALL myself.

I may have some digestive regrets in the morning. But man, was it ever tasty.
