Take asparagus and snap each at the natural point. (hold at each end and bend. The stalk will snap at it's natural point.) Or a TIP leave the bands on both ends and slice the stalks all at once. In a jelly roll pan drizzle olive oil over stalks. Add salt and pepper and bake at 300 until stalks are bright green or ends turn crispy.
