Garlic Roasted Asparagus

As I mentioned in an earlier post, it's asparagus season. Greg & I picked some up at Sam's Club and I wanted to try a few new asparagus recipes this weekend. Tonight we had Garlic Roasted Asparagus. It was so simple and healthy. I served it with Creamy Italian Chicken.

Garlic Roasted Asparagus

* 1 lb fresh asparagus spears
* Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
* 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

1. Preheat oven to 450.
2. Snap off tough ends of asparagus, and place on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. Coat asparagus with cooking spray, and sprinkle with garlic salt.
3. Bake at 450 for 8 minutes.

If you've never cooked with asparagus, here's a quck and easy tip that I learned from watching Rachel Ray. Take one asparagus and snap off the end, then take the bunch and line up with the spear that you snapped off, take a knife and cut the ends off all the others in one easy motion. It's much faster than snapping each spear individually.
