These oven roasted asparagus are the perfect quick and healthy side dish the whole family will love!

Asparagus are my go-to side dish for busy weeknights since you can prepare them in different ways and they’re ready in no time. Roasting them is my preferred method since it gives the tips the perfect amount of crisp.

You can just toss them in olive oil, salt and pepper and throw them in the oven or to give them a little more flavor, my personal favorite way is to add herbs and lemon to the mix!

Such a delicious and healthy side dish! Enjoy!
