Roasted Asparagus with Garlic-perfect with lamb!

A very easy and delicious way to dress up that wonderful bundle of green....

3T. of olive oil
2 pounds of fresh asparagus, rinsed and dried
1 to 1/2 t. of fresh minced garlic
sea salt
2 t. of fresh squeezed lemon juice

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Toss the asparagus with oil and garlic in a large plastic bag for about thirty seconds.
Arrange on flat baking pan and sprinkle with the sea salt.  Add pepper to your liking. Bake the asparagus until tender and the tips are starting to turn brown. (You will have to flip the spears around a few times when cooking.)This takes about 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle with lemon juice. Serve immediately.
Have a wonderful Easter celebration!

Does the garlic go in the oil? This sounds delicious! I cook lamb frequently and will try this next time!!

I love roasted asparagus, so I make them often this time of the year. I like to sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on them before serving. Buona Pasqua!
