Roasted Asparagus is a delicious side dish that my family just loves! This super easy recipe includes asparagus, olive oil and salt, that’s it.
The key to keep the asparagus still crisp but tender enough to melt in your mouth is the right temperature, 375 degrees and to roast only for 8 – 10 minutes, the color of the asparagus will be bright green when they are ready.
Before you add the olive oil and salt to the asparagus you need to snap off the bottom of each piece. The bottom will be very stalky (is that a word?) and chewy, not something you want to eat. When you bend the asparagus, it will basically bend where you need to snap it off. Oddly enough, the asparagus knows 🙂
