Roasted Asparagus

Roasted Asparagus

Just a very simple side dish that goes well with so many things. Or just eat it as a snack by itself. You can cook these in so many ways - the air fryer, toaster oven, regular oven, or just a pan on the stovetop. I used my regular oven for these with just a light spray of oil and seasonings.
