A fast and easy asparagus recipe is this:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
Rinse and trim your asparagus spears. Spritz a cookie sheet with a bit of olive oil. Lay the asparagus in a single layer on the sheet. Spritz the asparagus with a bit of olive oil to coat. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes until tender-crisp. Remove and add whatever, and then serve.
Then add whatever you want. Some things that I add are salt and/or pepper; a tablespoon of Orange Juice mixed with a bit of butter; a bit of balasamic vinegar; a bit of garlic salt; herbs; etc. For the lamb, I'd consider some OJ and butter with a few orange curls for garnish.
It's a fast and easy way to make asparagus. And it rarely fails.
