1 pounds fresh asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Break off the tough ends of the asparagus and, if they’re thick, peel them.
3. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, then toss to coat the asparagus completely.
4. Spread the asparagus in a single layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
5. Roast the asparagus for 15 minutes, until tender but still crisp.
