  • 2 lbs. asparagus tough ends removed or broken off
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Zest of 1 lemon


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lay your asparagus on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Drizzle on the extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle on some salt and freshly ground pepper. Lastly, sprinkle on the lemon zest over the asparagus (you can just use your grater/zester right over the asparagus).
  • Roast until the asparagus is tender and just turning golden, for about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and enjoy!
