Oven-roasted asparagus is a quick and easy side dish perfect for lunch or dinner.


Units Scale
  • 2.25 pounds asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1.  Preheat oven to 425°F. 
  2. Place asparagus in a colander and wash them under cold running water.
  3. Pat them dry with a paper towel.
  4. Snap the stems off the asparagus.  The asparagus will easily break when you bend it.
  5. Place the asparagus on a sheet pan that has been sprayed with pan release spray, lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  6. Drizzle oil on the asparagus. 
  7.  Add the salt and pepper.
  8. Toss the asparagus to distribute oil and seasoning. 
  9. Shake the pan side to side to distribute the asparagus.
  10. Place the pan in the oven and roast asparagus for 10-15 minutes until just tender.  
  11. Remove the pan from the oven and serve.
  12. Enjoy!


1. Be sure not to overcook the asparagus because this will make it mushy.

2.  Halfway through cooking, taste a spear to see if it is done.  If not, cook for a few minutes longer.
