Ridiculously easy roasted asparagus ...














Asparagus was on sale for $1.88 a pound this week, so I bought two big bunches. My favorite way to make it is roasted in a hot oven, with a drizzle of good olive oil.
TARRAGON ROASTED ASPARAGUS
INGREDIENTS:
Fresh Asparagus, woody ends removed
Olive Oil
Sea salt
Black pepper
Dried tarragon
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash fresh asparagus and pat dry with paper towels. Remove the woody ends, either with a knife or break at the "snap." Lay asparagus spears flat in an oven-proof dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle on sea salt, pepper and tarragon. Bake, uncovered, for about 5-8 minutes. I like to use the thinnest spears I can find. This should be crisp tender. You don't want it to be mushy.
