This recipe was actually an accident that happened about 5 years ago, but was such a hit, I make it every year now. I had found a wonderful recipe for roasted asparagus, and after I put it in the over, I forgot to set the timer for the over.

The result, was amazing. The kids even loved it, they called it green french fries. So here is the recipe.

Ingredients

Olive oil

1-2 pounds of Fresh asparagus

2 tablespoons of minced garlic (or more if you like)

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

wash asparagus and trim the woody ends off. Place the asparagus and garlic on a baking sheet that is at least 1 inch deep. Coat with olive oil, add salt and pepper, mix well with your hands. Put in the oven for about 15 – 20 minutes, depending on how crispy you like them. Stir once while it is cooking.
