This is a super easy side dish that you can serve with just about anything from poultry, to steak or pork. Great for any holiday like Thanksgiving, Christmas or even for Easter. More side dishes I love are Mashed Cauliflower and Maple Soy Glazed Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash with Bacon.

This simple method will give you tender-crisp asparagus in about 10 minutes. I simply spritz it with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Then I roast the asparagus in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes.

  1. Only thing I do differently is sprinkle garlic powder after salt/pepper seasoning. Might also be good to try lemon pepper.

    Do you have a recommended olive oil spritzer? On Amazon I see prices from about $10 to $30!

  3. Delicious!  Make sure you dry the asparagus after washing or they will steam and not roast.
    Made it using the garlic variation.

  5. I tried roasting asparagus in my air fryer, and can’t eat it any other way now! So so good. Same way, a little olive oil and seasonings of your choice! Delish

    I always have trouble getting asparagus to turn out just right! Can’t wait to try this temp/time combo and I love your seasoning recommendations!

  7. This is the perfect – and IMHO ONLY – way to serve asparagus! I love to top it with lemon zest. It’s bright, colorful and adds just the right zing. 

  8. I hate mushy asparagus so I decided to try this last night since I was baking a piece of salmon at 400 degrees and my Mom wanted asparagus.. It was so good that the three of us finished off the entire bunch. The only change I made was to leave off the pepper and add some minced garlic instead.

  10. I substituted the olive oil spray with melted unsalted butter and wrapped 3 at a time in bacon…awesome and delish!!!

  11. I was inspired and added my own twist to this recipe! Dipped asparagus is egg and then rolled in breadcrumbs, sprinkled some grated parmasean cheese and sprayed with butter. Put in the oven on 375 for about 13 minutes. DELICIOUS!!

  12. Made this tonight–I've never made asparagus before. Will be making this again and again in the future! Thanks!

  13. I love this dish! So simple to throw together when you need another side dish to complete a meal. I sprinkled just a touch of parmesean cheese when pulling out of the oven! Delicious! Thanks, Gina!

  14. This recipe is a great, simple way to enjoy asparagus. To kick it up a little, I added fresh minced garlic to the asparagus before roasting.
