Our friend Molly introduced us to this. If you love asparagus, this is a fresh new way to taste it.
- 1 bunch asparagus
- 1 lemon
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
Take the zest from half the lemon, then juice from the whole lemon, and set aside. Place the asparagus in a shallow baking dish, toss with the oil making sure the stalks are evenly coated, and arrange them in a single layer. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until just tender. Remove from oven, drizzle on the juice and top with the zest.
Wow–I made the blog! I’m so proud : ).
Sounds delicious!!! Thanks for sharing!
A great addition to this recipe is a little grated parmesan cheese sprinkled over the asparagus before they go in the oven. Yum.
I made this last night only I didn’t have a lemon so I sprinkled Parmesan and a little salt and pepper on the asparagus before putting it in the oven. It was sooo delicious that my husband almost mistook me for a chef. Ha ha.
That’s great! What will you make tonight? 🙂
