Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Print Friendly and PDF
This is a quick and easy way to make asparagus in your oven. Try not to overcook the asparagus, as it should be served tender crisp. It still is cooking after you take it out of the oven, so adjust your time accordingly. It's a cinch to make!

2 lbs asparagus, trimmed
¼ cup olive oil
Fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper, after baking

Heat oven to 450. Place asparagus in a single layer on a shallow baking dish or brimmed cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with garlic and basil. Bake 6-8 min. at 450 degrees. Do not overcook. It can also be grilled on a barbeque for 4-6 min. total. Add salt and pepper after cooking.
