Roasting asparagus is easy. Just arrange on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of kosher salt and a touch of garlic. Stick it in a 450 degree oven and roast for seven minutes. If the spears are a little thick it might take a minute or two longer, but don't overcook it! It should be tender but still crisp.
Another of my favorite ways to serve up asparagus is in this pasta dish. The recipe originally came from Cooking Light, and I love that it's fast and easy to prepare. You can have it on the table even faster if you saute your onion in a little olive oil and stir in crumbled pre-cooked bacon or bacon pieces at the end. (No Bacos allowed!)
