Asparagus is GREAT, and it really is SO easy to cook. Every tiem I make it I just bake it for about 10-15 minutes, aroung 400 degrees. I season it with salt and pepper, sometimes I use a garlic ginger spice mix. but really asaparagus is so good, you could just eat it with a bit of olive oil drizzled on topl
