Emeril Lagasse recipe from Food Network Site

"My husband likes his asparagus mushy but when I served him up this batch he thought it was just the right amount of crisp. The oil burns off in the oven and we could taste/smell that otherwise this would be a five star rating "


2 pounds asparagus; tough ends trimmed, rinsed and patted dry
3 tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 1/2 tablespoons Garlic; minced
black pepper; Freshly ground
2 teaspoons Fresh Lemon Juice

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large glass baking dish, toss the asparagus with the olive oil and garlic. Season lightly with salt and pepper, and toss. Bake until the asparagus are tender and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the stalks, stirring twice.

Remove from the oven and toss with the lemon juice. Adjust the seasoning, to taste.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

I forgot to put the lemon on and it was still good! Next time I'm going to try a little more garlic

I never knew now to fix that vegetable. I love garlic, and know I knowhow to fix asparagus, I appreciate the recipe, I will fix it for Thanksgiving dinner instead of the original green beans

Very tasty. I cut the end of stalks off before baking (too touch for me).

I add parmesan cheese sprinkled on top at the end of the cook time. Instead tossing with the lemon juice I just sprinkled on top of it .In this household we will be making again and again

A classic side dish for us. We love doing this when ever asparagus is in season.
