1. Adjust oven rack to uppermost position (about 4 inches from the heating element) and heat broiler.

2. Toss asparagus with oil and salt and pepper, then lay spears in single layer on heavy rimmed baking sheet. Broil about 4 inches from heating element, shaking pan halfway through to turn spears, until asparagus is tender and lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes.

3. Cool asparagus 5 minutes and arrange on serving dish.

Hold the asparagus about halfway down the stalk; with the other hand, hold the cut end between the thumb and index finger about an inch or so up from the bottom and bend the stalk until it snaps.


Stephenie: This is good. Especially if you have flavored olive oil. Be careful not to overcook the asparagus.
