I like the Costco asparagus year round; but, now, being asparagus season, the taste is best. (An entire cart?)
I wanted an asparagus recipe that would preserve the fresh spring taste, and this one turned out pretty well:
Snap off the woody asparagus bottoms and place asparagus in single layer on a baking dish (I used a cookie sheet with a lip and lined it with foil).
Drizzle asparagus with good olive oil.
Season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
Bake asparagus at 400 for 10 minutes.
Rearrange spears, cook a few minutes more.
I served with rice, chicken and fresh bread.
