Lemon Baked Asparagus

Asparagus….

Our market had asparagus the other day – and love those beautiful, green spears.  There are so many things you can do – Soup, sauce, stir fry – or just beautifully roasted.

It’s pretty simple to do.

You need the asparagus, olive oil and a lemon – that’s it!

Clean the spears by gently washing and cutting the woody bottom stems off.

Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle some olive oil and garlic salt over the spear.

Bake at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes – check them frequently.  You want them warm but with just a little crunch left!

Remove from the oven and squeeze some lemon juice over the top.  Garnish with lemon slices and serve hot!

Too hot for the oven?  You can place the cookie sheet on the grill too!

So simple and so delicious!  Try these asparagus recipes too!
