Roasted Asparagus

I roast a lot of vegetables.  Roasting is an efficient way to prepare vegetables because you can put them in the oven and work on other parts of the meal.  I think my all time favorite is roasted asparagus.

Roasted Asparagus

2 bunches of fresh asparagus
2 T olive oil
1 t freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 425o.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Bend the asparagus until the woody end breaks off.  Discard the ends and rinse.  Pat dry and place asparagus on the prepared baking sheet.  Drizzle olive oil over asparagus and sprinkle with seasoned salt and black pepper.  Using your hands, roll the asparagus around on the sheet to coat with oil, salt and pepper.  Spread out the asparagus evenly on the baking sheet.  Bake in oven for about 15 minutes*, stirring at least once.  4-6 servings
*The cook time may need to be adjusted depending on the thickness of the asparagus.
