How to Bake Asparagus in the oven

I love asparagus as a side dish with baked seafood like sumptuous fillets of fish. I enjoy baking them because I love the nutty and crunchy texture as a result. This is such a healthy and easy side dish to make with only 5 ingredients on the recipe.

Roasting the asparagus at 350°F/176°C depends on your elevation. Our elevation is 1,300 Feet in elevation. Here is a handy chart for adjusting the roasting temperature to match your elevation. If you’re not sure your elevation a quick Google search will tell you.
