Active Time:  10 Minutes
Total Time:  20 Minutes
  8 Servings
1 1/2 pounds thin asparagus, trimmed
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

Place asparagus on rimmed large baking sheet. Drizzle oil over asparagus; toss to coat. Arrange asparagus evenly over baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven until asparagus is crisp-tender and beginning to brown in spots, turning halfway through baking, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook butter in small saucepan over medium heat until butter simmers and is pale golden brown, about 6 minutes. Add sage and simmer 1 minute longer. Remove from heat.

Drizzle sage butter over roasted asparagus. Toss to coat. Arrange asparagus on serving platter and serve.

The asparagus can be steamed instead of roasted and then tossed with the brown-sage butter.
