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.
