Food Friday: Roasted Asparagus or Green Beans

A few weeks ago I was helping my mom prepare dinner for a family gathering when she asked me to prepare the asparagus.  I made it the same way I always make it but none of my family had tried it that way before and everyone couldn't stop talking about how good it was.  I use the same concept for both asparagus and green beans and simply change the seasonings to match the meal.

Asparagus or green beans
Olive oil
Seasonings to match meal (I almost always include a dash of garlic powder)

Put the vegetables on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.  Add salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings you desire.  Roast at 400 degrees for 15-30 minutes (depends on how much you are cooking).  I usually make this in my toaster oven and it takes a little less time.
