Roasted Asparagus with Lemon

Roasted Asparagus with Lemon is my favorite side dish of spring!  A quick drizzle of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and it's ready for the oven….whoops…I just gave you the whole recipe!


  • 1 bundle asparagus
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 450°.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Wash and trim asparagus.
  • Place asparagus on prepared baking sheet.
  • Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Use hands to toss and coat all asparagus.
  • Place in oven and roast for 8-12 minutes, keeping a close eye on the asparagus.  Tips will brown just a tiny bit and the stalks will stay bright green, and be easily pierced with a fork.
  • Enjoy!
