Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus see note
  • 8 oz Cremini mushrooms quartered (also called baby bella mushrooms)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper coarsely ground
  • ¼ cup salted butter melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Trim the root ends from the asparagus spears about 1” or enough to remove any white or purple part. Cut the mushrooms in quarters
  • Arrange the asparagus down the long side of a rimmed baking sheet, spreading the spears out a bit. Arrange the mushrooms in the remaining space below.
  • Sprinkle the salt and pepper over all the vegetables. Drizzle with melted butter.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes stirring once in the middle. When the asparagus is tender and tips are browning it is done. Taste for salt and pepper and serve.

Notes

How to Choose Asparagus: In the store look for spears of asparagus that are about the width of a pencil or at the largest a narrow sharpie. Choose a bundle that has fresh green tips and is not slimy.
