  • 2 bunches asparagus about 2 pounds total
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper or to taste
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Bend each stalk of asparagus until it snaps, then discard the woody end. Add all spears to a colander, then rinse and drain.
  3. Place the asparagus in a large bowl, then toss with olive oil and salt and pepper. Dump onto prepared baking sheet and arrange evenly across pan. (The spears do not have to be in a single layer.) Roast for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender.
  4. Remove from oven and top with goat cheese and pine nuts.

Recipe Notes

Watching sodium? Skip the added salt. The goat cheese has enough that you probably won't miss it.
