Lemon Roasted Asparagus

This one we tried and liked but didn't have a date--it's worth posting!

Lemon Roasted Asparagus

2 lb. fresh asparagus
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Snap off and discard tough ends of asparagus. (If you don't know they trick, just bend them and they break naturally where the tough part begins, so just toss that end.) Place asparagus on lightly greased baking sheet.

Whisk together remaining ingredients and drizzle over asparagus, tossing to coat.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or to desired degree of tenderness, turning once after 8 minutes.

We love asparagus!! Yum.
