How to Make PEGGI'S ROASTED ASPARAGUS
- Preheat oven to 400°
- You will need a broiling pan or some sort of flat pan with slight lip on it. I use my little pan that came with my countertop oven, as that is the oven I use to cook this in.
- Trim asparagus: Start from the bottom of stalk & in about 1 1/2" lengths, snap the asparagus, like green beans. Usually the first snap will be tough & stringy. When asparagus starts to make a crisp snap, you are in the keepable part. Throw tough part away. If you try to snap the first piece from the bottom of stem & it has no give or won't snap, keep trying up the stalk until it does & that's where you want to start keeping the stalk.
Or you can try cutting with knife & when it makes a cut & has no resistence with the knife, that's wher it starts being good.
- Peggi's Note: You can also do this on the grill. Just put in same pan & place on hot grill until done.
