Roasted Asparagus with Garlic (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free, Paleo)

When big fat spears of asparagus appear in the spring, it's time to try roasting them with garlic.

When asparagus was on sale at one of my favorite markets in Salt Lake, I made Chicken with Asparagus and Three Cheeses, and then I had more asparagus in the fridge, so I tried this recipe, an adapted version of Roasted Broccoli with Garlic. It was a great tasting dish, and a simple way to dress up plain roasted asparagus. I tried it out on some friends who came for dinner, and they loved it.

(This recipe for Roasted Asparagus with Garlic was updated and added to Recipe Favorites, February 2011.  I'm seeing asparagus in the stores lately, so it got me thinking about this favorite way to prepare it.)
