A. this is one of the few green vegetables Chuck will eat,
B. this is one of the few ways Chuck likes vegetables prepared, and
C. it's delicious!
I love roasting any sort of vegetables, but asparagus is really the best when prepared this way. Play around with the herbs and spices you use as well. I have tried several different ways but the recipe below is Chuck's favorite. Some favorite variations of mine include adding minced garlic when you add the salt and pepper, and than grating some Parmesan cheese over the asparagus as soon as you take it out of the oven.
Makes 3-4 servings
1 bunch asparagus, about 1 pound
coarse ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Wash and pay dry asparagus. Cut off woody ends and then cut stalks in half.
