Roasting pan

Hello,

I found an asparagus recipe where it is roasted in a roasting pan. I don't have one. What is a roasting pan? Can I use a baking dish instead?

Thanks
Sunflower

Well it depends... what does the recipe want you to do with the asparagus specifically? Are they to be roasted with other ingredients?

In any case, a roasting pan is a large metal pan usually used for roasting large meats (turkey, pork roasts, etc.) Some have removable racks that fit inside. Here is a picture: http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B0...1.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

I might be wrong but was thinking of what you could do since you don't own one.......couldn't she just use a deep baking pan or cookie sheet and put a cooling rack inside it and cover the entire thing with aluminum foil?

The recipe asks to arrange the asparagus in a roasting pan and roast for 10 minutes covering and then roast for 10 mins. without the foil.

I just 'roasted' it in a shallow baking dish and followed the recipe exactly. It tasted good, but I am wondering if a roasting pan would have made any difference.

A roasting pan and a baking dish would give you the same results.

Use any pan/glass casserole dish you want. Use a cookie sheet.

A roasting pan can be practically any pan that's used to roast meat in, such as a whole turkey, chicken, beef, pok or a lamb leg.

It can be open or closed, in an oval shape with a matching cover, or in an oblong shape with a matching cover, or just an open pan that's disigned for dry roasting large roasts.
