Continuing the vegetable theme from last week and offering a simple (to type and to make) recipe, I offer roasted asparagus. Claire introduced me to this asparagus, and it remains one of the few ways I actually like eating asparagus.
~as much or as little as you want
1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
2. Trim asparagus.
3. Lay asparagus in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.
4. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with crushed garlic, salt, and pepper to taste.
5. Roast at 500 degrees for ~ 12 minutes. (Thicker asparagus may need more time.)
*I prefer thin asparagus, but do as you wish.
*Like with any cooking, the better olive oil you use, the better the dish will be.
