Baked Asparagus


Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Trim the stems of the asparagus, cutting off the tough ends. Place the olive oil on a heavy baking sheet or jelly roll pan. Place the asparagus on the pan and roll to coat with the oil. Sprinkle with salt. Bake the asparagus for 5-8 minutes or just until done. Transfer to a platter and season with pepper. 4 servings.
