“I like to use recipes that call for fresh produce I’ve grown in my garden. Here’s a simple way to make baked asparagus to bring out the flavour while maintaining that bright green colour.” —Robert Foust, Indianapolis, Indiana
Taste of Home
- 1 lb fresh asparagus trimmed
- 2 tbsp butter
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350°. Place the asparagus on a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Dot with butter. Bring edges of foil together and seal tightly; place foil packet on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp-tender, 25-30 minutes. Carefully open foil to allow steam to escape. Season with salt and pepper.
