In the Kitchen: Roasted Asparagus

Roasted Asparagus with

Olive Oil and Lemon Pepper

Seriously, seriously, the best way to eat asparagus, THE BEST!  I was never an asparagus fan, neither was my hubs, UNTIL I saw Rachael Ray do it like this.  My entire family, 2 year old included, can't get enough of it!  We usually eat it straight off the pan before we can even get it to our plates.
Fresh asparagus 
Olive oil (I prefer using a mister)
Lemon pepper 

Set oven to broil.  Since these are thin stalks I set it to low, if they are thicker, set the broiler to high.  Rinse the asparagus, then snap the ends off, where the bottom inch or two, snaps off easily.  This will ensure you don't have rough, chewy, stringy ends.

Lay it out on a sheet pan in a single layer.  Drizzle or mist with olive oil. Sprinkle on lemon pepper generously. 
Broil for 10 minutes or until it starts to shrivel, but doesn't turn black/dark.
Take it out of the oven, and try not to eat it all off the pan!
