Roasted Asparagus

You only need olive oil, salt, and freshly ground black pepper to bring out their full flavor of asparagus.

2 pounds fresh asparagus
Good olive oil 
Kosher salt, plus extra for sprinkling 
Freshly ground black pepper 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 

Break off the tough ends of the asparagus and, if they're thick, peel them. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, then toss to coat the asparagus completely. Spread the asparagus in a single layer and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Roast the asparagus for 25 minutes, until tender but still crisp.
