Easy Roasted Asparagus

I am so happy Spring is here.  I love all the spring fruits and veggies.  I picked up some asparagus the other day and I knew I wanted to roast them.  This Easy Roasted Asparagus is so easy and fool proof!  I promise you will love it.  This roasted asparagus recipe is very similar to my Easy Roasted Broccoli and my Honey Balsamic Brussel Sprouts.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like my asparagus to be completely soft.  I like a little crunch still left to it.  That is why I only roasted mine for 10 minutes.  If you like a softer asparagus, feel free to keep it in the oven longer.
