1 lb. asparagus spears (thick spears are best for roasting)
2 T. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced (2 if you really like garlic)
ground black pepper
sprinkle lemon juice
Parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Wash asparagus. Break off tough ends and throw away.
Place asparagus spears in a single layer on a foil-covered pan or sprayed baking dish.
Drizzle olive oil over the spears and roll them until they are covered in oil. Sprinkle with garlic, salt and pepper. Turn over asparagus so that they are well coated.
Place pan in oven and cook for 8-10 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork.
