The smell of the garlic will draw you in right before you pour it over the asparagus and pop them in the oven. This easy side dish looks elegant and simple, and it can be a good accompaniment to many dishes, especially steaks. I misread the recipe and used 1 full cup of olive oil instead of 1/2 cup, but next time I will pay more attention. Use a good amount of salt, though, because it may come off a tiny bit bland.
