Roasting vegetables is a good way to bring out their flavor. If you have something else in the oven at a different temperature, adjust the roasting time up or down. Also, you can adjust the quantity of asparagus for the number of people you’re feeding. You can fit up to about two full bunches on a regular rimmed baking sheet (my family will devour this if given the chance). The more you have on the pan, though, the longer it will take.
- 1 bunch asparagus
- Kosher salt
- Heat oven to 375
- Snap tough ends off asparagus and chop into 1″ lengths.
- Place on rimmed baking sheet.
- Toss with about 1-2 tablespoons of EVOO.
- Sprinkle with salt
- Roast 8-10 minutes, until tender.
