Baked Asparagus is the perfect way to eat it. If you’ve never tried it before, start with this easy recipe!
I had never tried asparagus until a couple months ago when my husband’s sister Melanie made it for dinner. Nor had I ever wanted to. It just never looked appealing to me. My world has changed. It is such a simple dish, but that’s the beauty of it. You know me and simple. We are like this *fingers crossed*. All Melanie did was drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, and put it in the oven. Oh.My. I have been craving it ever since. I ordered a Bountiful Basket last week and guess what was a part of it? My little asparagus! I was thrilled. So I made a green dinner for St. Patty’s Day. Chicken and Broccoli with Spinach Fettucini Alfredo with the sauce colored green. So fun. I love having kids. It gives me an excuse to still enjoy these things.

- 1 bunch of Asparagus
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- salt and pepper
- Wash and cut about 1 inch off the ends of the asparagus. Not the bushy part. The straight end. Place on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir around so all the pieces get coated.
- Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes. Check and continue baking until tender.
