So easy and so delicious- there are many ways you can alter the recipe below. If you want to make it really quick, just use Wegmans basting oil, which already has the spices in it. You can just drizzle it on and pop it in the oven and cook at 450 degrees for 7 minutes. You can sprinkle with a little grated Parmesan cheese at the end for a nice touch. Below is a recipe I found from Eating Richly.  I like the lemon combined with the garlic together.  (Below serves 4- you will have to double or triple if you have a bigger gang).


16 thick-stemmed asparagus, trimmed

4 cloves of garlic, minced

1/2 tsp lemon zest

2 TBS lemon juice

2 TBS extra virgin olive oil

1/4 tsp coarse salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and place asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet or in a baking pan in a single layer.
  2. Sprinkle the minced garlic and lemon zest over the asparagus and drizzle with the lemon juice and olive oil.
  3. Roast for 7-12 minutes until easily pierced with a fork but still very crispy. Remove from oven and sprinkle with salt.
