  Hi all! :) It has been awhile since my last post....with spring finally here (I think) I'm spending more time outside; planting garden, cleaning out flower beds etc...so I haven't had quite as much time to spend cooking; well at least trying new recipes. This isn't a new one for me, but it is sooo simple & delicious that I wanted to share it! I never really cared for asparagus at all until I tried it this way & now it is probably one of my favorite vegetables!!

[[Baked Asparagus]]

Arrange asparagus spears on a baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil. Add fresh ground pepper & salt to suit your taste.
Bake @ 350* until tender crisp...around 8-12 minutes.
  I usually sprinkle sesame seeds over top before serving, but didn't do that this evening. Also if you want to take the time or if you are grilling something else it is even better grilled!! =) Adds a nice flavor.......
Hope you enjoy!
