4. Spread the asparagus out on the cookie sheet.  Covering the cookie sheet in foil first makes it easier to clean.

Note:  You can also cook the asparagus on the grill…just make sure that the spears are laid perpendicular to the racks so that they don’t fall through the holes.  Or put them in a grilling basket* (which makes them much easier to take off when you are done).

5. Bake for 10 minutes in the oven (or grill for about the same amount of time).
