my favorite way to eat asparagus

For a long time I didn't think I liked asparagus. But, like most foods, you just need to play around with it and figure out how to cook it well and to your liking. I've learned that I like pretty much any vegetable if it's roasted. Right now I'm kind of obsessed with asparagus. This is my absolute favorite way to eat it. I can almost down a whole pan by myself. Here's how I do it:

Take one bunch of asparagus and place in a roasting dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Add the zest and juice from one lemon. Sprinkle with a little salt & pepper and roast in a pre-heated 425 degree oven for 20-ish minutes (I like my vegetables soft... cook for less time if you want them to still have a bit of crunch). Go ahead and inhale them.
