Roasted Asparagus Spears of Love for #TripleSBites

I hope you have been enjoying the #TripleSBite event as much as I.  Today I am sharing with you a very simple but delicious side dish that is appropriate for any dinner.  I chose it for this event because, in case you were not aware, asparagus is considered by many to be an aphrodesiac.  I don't know about that but I do know that this is a great recipe and one I use quite often.  You can ue this method both for oven roasting or for grilling so it is great year round.


Roasted Asparagus

4-5 spears of asparagus per person
olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
juice and zest from 1/4 lemon for each 4 persons

Snap tough ends off of asparagus by holding on each end and bending so that it snaps naturally.  Discard tough stems.  Place remaining spears on a bakng sheet lined with parchment paper.  Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Roast in a hot oven  (425*) for 10-15 minutes or until tender.  Remove from oven, place on serving platter, drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with zest.
