You know...I was never a huge fan of asparagus until recently. The only way I'd ever had it was crunchy...and maybe that's why. I was like, meh. BUT! I discovered that if I roast it then I can make the tips a little crispy and it was perfect! This is an easy side to make however YOU want. Want it crunchy? Then don't cook it as long as the recipe calls for. But, if you're like me and like it a little crispy from being cooked longer, then here you go!

(This recipe is for one bunch of asparagus, but you can do any amount.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
1 bunch asparagus ~ trimmed and the stalks peeled

2 cloves garlic ~ minced
Spread trimmed asparagus onto a rimmed baking sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil....I used about 3 - 4 tablespoons
Sprinkle with salt and pepper
Sprinkle with minced garlic
Cook for 30 minutes or to desired doneness.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south.
