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.

Between Andy and Mexican Mama, Iam out of ideas. Since lamb is a traditional food in the Middle East I'd also go with traditional Middle Eastern sides. Rise or couscous, better yet both for variety. Both are simple to make and a wonderful complement to the lamb’s flavor.
