How to Roast Asparagus
Roasting asparagus is super easy and quick! Simply toss your prepared asparagus with butter and herbs, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. I like to do this on a large, rimmed baking sheet (affiliate link) sprayed with cooking spray for easy clean-up.
Bake until the asparagus is easily pierced through by a fork, which will vary depending on the thickness of your asparagus. Pencil-thin asparagus, like the kind shown here, will be done in as little as 10 minutes. Thicker asparagus will need between 15 to 20 minutes.
Roasted asparagus is the perfect springtime side dish, whether for brunch or dinner. As a bonus, it’s simple to throw together while your main dish cooks on the stove!
