Asparagus means two things: 1) delicious and 2) spring has officially arrived!
Heat the oven (with oven rack in middle) to 425°F. Snap the tough bottom end (1 to 2 inches) from each asparagus spear and discard. Place the asparagus on a rimmed sheet pan and toss with the oil, lemon zest, salt and pepper (12 turns on pepper mill). Arrange in a single layer and roast until just tender, about 10 minutes.
