Lemon-Pepper Roasted Asparagus

 
After a long winter here in New England, these past couple weeks of fresh CSA veggies have been a welcome burst of bright color and fresh, crisp flavor! Just look at this photo -- so many beautiful colors and believe me it all tastes as good as it looks. Strawberries, tomatoes, lettuce and greens, early red onions, beets, radishes so many flavors! Friends often ask me how I come up with recipes to share on this blog, well look at my inspiration... The options are endless when working with all this beautiful produce! So here you go, one of my favorite asparagus recipes!

 


 
 
 
 
 
Lemon-Pepper Roasted Asparagus
 
1 bunch fresh asparagus
1-2  teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning (I prefer Trader Joe's brand)
1 teaspoon good quality extra virgin olive oil
 
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Wash and trim woody ends from asparagus, pat dry, and place on large baking sheet in single layer
3. Sprinkle with seasoning as desired
4. Drizzle with olive oil and toss with hands to make sure all asparagus is evenly coated
5. Roast 12-15 minutes until asparagus is fork tender and slightly browned on edges
 
*Leftovers are delicious chopped and added to a salad!
