  • 1 Bunch Asparagus Spears Trimmed
  • 2 Tbl. Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place trimmed asparagus sears in a large bowl. Coat with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
    If you want to add other toppings, now would be a good time for that. Such as the lemon, Parmesan, or garlic.
  • Arrange the asparagus onto a baking sheet in a single layer.

    Note, I baked 4 bunches today, so I had more than a single layer. It still tasted delicious.
