Why I Love This Recipe

This is a perfect fall vegetable recipe, it is one of my husbands favorite vegetable recipes that I make and it is so simple. The asparagus has such a great crispy taste and texture to it!

Ingredients You'll Need

2 bunches thin asparagus, ends trimmed (or however much you feel like making)
2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
I never actually measure any of these, I just use however much looks good to me.


Preheat oven to 425.

Spread out spears on a large shallow roasting pan.

Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Shake pan gently so asparagus is almost completely coated in oil.

Roast until tender about 10 min, give or take, depending on thickness of asparagus.

Shake pan halfway threw cooking to keep spears from sticking.

Just before serving, drizzle with a little more olive oil and adjust seasonings (if need be).

The asparagus has such a great crispy taste and texture to it!
