Roasted Asparagus Recipe

5 from 3 reviews

Roasted asparagus is easy and yummy! Sometimes the simple things are the best.


  • 3 lbs. asparagus (trimmed and cleaned, and peeled if necessary (thicker spears need peeling)
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Wash and trim the asparagus spears, and peel the lower portion, if the spears are large and woody.
  3. Place on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  4. Pour the olive oil over the spears, and toss so they are well covered in oil.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, the same amount you would use to season on your plate if you were eating them.
  6. Roast in the oven for 10 -30 minutes until tender. The thicker spears will take longer, the thinner pencil size one less time.
