The BEST way to cook fresh market asparagus

Asparagus is hitting the Ithaca Farmers Market this week. Come on down and gather the goodness. There's nothing tastier than fresh roasted asparagus. Grab some homemade pasta, some fresh meat, herbs, and flowers to compose a lovely spring dinner. To roast the asparagus, wash it and trim the bottoms. Pat dry and spread evenly across a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Roast at 425 degrees for approximately 12 minutes. If you have extra, which is doubtful, these tender green stalks of goodness are yummy in quiche or an omelette. Just gather some eggs, herbs and bacon from our outstanding vendors for a Sunday morning treat. image (3)
