Garlic Roasted Asparagus

Roasting is my favorite way to cook asparagus. I make a lot of variations of this by adding things like balsamic or parmesan cheese, but here is my simple recipe for garlic roasted asparagus.

Garlic, roughly chopped (I used 4 cloves for about 1 and a half bunches of asparagus, but I change the amount depending on how much garlic I feel like)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

1. Trim the rough ends of the asparagus and spread out flat on a baking sheet. Top with the garlic.
2. Drizzle the asparagus and garlic with olive oil (to coat) and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.

3. Cook in a 450 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus.
