Oven Roasted Asparagus

This is my new favorite way to prepare asparagus! It's easy and so very tasty!! I have been totally in love with asparagus during this pregnancy, and this recipe is totally satisfying!

Oven Roasted Asparagus
from The Pioneer Woman

1 bunch Asparagus
4 Tablespoons (up To 5 Tablespoons) Olive Oil
Kosher Salt To Taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

After you wash the asparagus thoroughly, stack a bunch together and lop off the tough/thick bottom an inch or so.

Spread out the asparagus in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Pat asparagus dry with a paper towel.
Begin by generously drizzling olive oil all over the asparagus and then sprinkle the asparagus generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Roast the asparagus for about ten minutes. You want  the oven to be very hot so the asparagus can begin to brown on the outside without overcooking and getting too flimsy.
