Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Oven roasting vegetables is one of the best ways to bring out their natural flavors. This quick and easy recipe makes a great weeknight side dish that pairs well with beef, chicken, pork or seafood. It's also great in a number of white sauce pasta dishes.

1 pound fresh asparagus, tough ends removed
1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
fresh lemon zest (optional)

Preheat oven to 400°

Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over asparagus and toss to coat well. Arrange on baking sheet covered in aluminum foil (for easier cleanup) in a single layer. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Roast for 25 minutes or until crisp tender. Garnish with a little fresh lemon zest, if desired.
