  1. 1 1/2 pounds medium asparagus, peeled
  2. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  5. 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. In a baking dish, drizzle the asparagus with half of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 15 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a knife. Drizzle the asparagus with the remaining olive oil and the lemon juice and zest. Serve hot.
Notes Olive Oil A nutty or buttery extra-virgin olive oil partners well with this lemon-accented asparagus.
