Quick and easy grilled asparagus

When Kev and I were dating, we went to Rooster's in Ogden and I distinctly remember having delicious asparagus and mashed potatoes (long before my lactose intolerance) as a side dish and realizing how much I love this stinky veggie.

I've made these grilled asparagus spears in the past, and they're so easy it's silly to share a "recipe" for them. But, maybe you've never thought of grilling asparagus before? Or maybe you've never tried preparing them this way before?

Here's what you'll need:

fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
olive oil
salt & pepper to taste

Prepare an aluminum foil "pan" to place over your grill. This will keep the olive oil in a nice little puddle when you grill the spears. Arrange your spears, drizzle the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until soft, and/or slightly charred (probably about 10 minutes depending on the heat of your grill).

THERE YOU GO. They really are that simple. Now go try it!
