Goodbye, boring vegetables! This roasted asparagus is simply seasoned, yet guaranteed to impress your dinner guests.  And it couldn't be easier to make. I whipped up a light sauce of olive oil, lemon juice, black pepper and dried thyme, then tossed that with the asparagus and roasted it in the oven for about ten minutes.

And here's a little tip to make the prep all that much easier: You don't have to cut the asparagus! Simply give it a little bend, and the end will snap off. This cuts down prep time, making this a dish you can whip up in less than 20 minutes!
