Makes 6 Servings
1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons vinegar
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Prepare the asparagus by cutting off the last inch or so of the woody stalk.
- Place the asparagus stalks on a baking sheet. Brush them with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Roast in the oven for 10 minutes, until the stalks begin to get tender on the outside. (Thin asparagus spears will take less time than thick spears.)
- Toss with the vinegar and serve.
