Asparagus is a delicious healthy vegetable that is fast an easy to make. It’s my “go to” veggie side. There are countless ways to cook asparagus, but I often cook mine the quick easy way (and my boyfriend Joe does as well) This method can be cooked in the oven, or on the grill with very little difference in the method. Simply cut 1/2-1″ off the bottom of the asparagus, toss with some olive oil, salt and pepper and bake in the oven at XXXDegrees for about. I prefer it a bit “aldente” If you like it that way, cook it for a little less time – for softer asparagus cook it a bit longer.
