I’m using a new to me tray for this recipe and I’m obsessed with it! It’s THIS Chicago Metallic aluminum textured baking sheet and I love it! They sent me a few of these new pans to try and so far I’m a big fan.

Before the past few years, I never had any smaller sheet pans (roughly 9×13 inches) and it’s been such a game changer for me. Often I don’t need a giant baking tray and these have been perfect. Highly recommend!

How to make oven roasted asparagus:

This recipe is ridiculously easy. Start by cutting the hard, white ends off of your cleaned asparagus.

Drizzle the asparagus with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. You can add whatever other spices you might like but I wanted to provide you with a nice base recipe to start out with. I often like to toss rosemary or thyme on mine as well.

Toss all of that together so that the asparagus is completely coated in oil and then bake it in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes. I like to top mine with a little parmesan cheese as I did in THIS recipe :D
