How to Roast Asparagus in an easy and simple way

 How to Roast Asparagus

  Roasting asparagus is probably my favorite ways to cook asparagus.  The natural sugars in the vegetables are concentrated by the high heat and you get a lovely golden exterior.

Directions :

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Place the asparagus in a baking pan. Don’t worry about finding a pan large enough to hold the asparagus in one layer – the stalks can overlap a bit. Drizzle the olive oil over them and toss gently to coat the asparagus evenly. Sprinkle on the salt, and toss again.
  3. Roast the asparagus for 8 to 10 minutes for thin stalks, 10 to 14 for thick ones. If they overlap, just give them a little shuffle with a spatula halfway through the cooking time so they all have a chance to brown a bit. Remember that they will continue to cook a bit after you remove them from the oven, so take them out while they’re still a little firmer than you would like.
