The roasted asparagus is very simple to make. Place the rinsed and drained fresh asparagus spears on a foil lined cookie sheet; drizzle with olive oil and season with fresh cracked black pepper and sea salt. Toss with your hands until all the spears are lightly coated. Spread the spears out in a single layer and pop them into a 400 degree oven and roast for about 20 minutes (more or less time depending on how thick or thin your spears are). You may have to toss them around once during the cooking process. Once they are lightly colored and the tenderness you like, remove them from the oven. If they are slightly undercooked and you are afraid of them drying out or the tips burning, loosely wrap the foil around them after removing from the oven and they will continue to steam a bit. In the summer time, we like to cook them on the grill in a grill pan. Here is the link for the Pesto Roasted Salmon: Pesto Roasted Salmon Recipe Below are a few pics. Enjoy!
