Roasted Asparagus

IMG_7207 (533x800)

We love asparagus, but there’s only so many times you can have them boiled with a balsamic reduction so I’m always on the look out for other options. This recipe is super easy and you can’t go wrong with the flavors of rosemary and lemon.

Roast in oven for 7 minutes, then carefully turn asparagus over and continue roasting for another 8 minutes. Watch for preferred doneness. Add additional time if needed. Total roasting time should be between 15-20 minutes.

Serve warm.
