Simple Roasted Asparagus

Roasted asparagus is one of my favorite easy green side dishes. They’re so flavorful already, you really don’t need to go overboard on the spices. We served this with a big Easter meal so we made two whole bunches. You could easily cut this down to one bunch for a just a few people. (Or two, with the amount of asparagus I can eat.)

Ingredients:
2 bunches fresh asparagus
2 tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves
kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 400.
2) Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray.
3) Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus and place on baking sheet.
4) With a brush, baste the oil on asparagus, gently turning to coat all sides.
5) Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, then crush garlic cloves over and toss together.
6) Bake about 18 minutes.
