Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare a baking tray lined with aluminum foil.
Place trimmed asparagus on top of foil. Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice, then top with garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and distribute garlic evenly among the asparagus.
Bake at 425°F for 12 to 15 minutes, just until the asparagus is tender and slightly deeper in color. Serve immediately.
Grocery tip: When selecting asparagus at the store, look for thin asparagus. The flavors of this dish shine more with thin asparagus, and the thicker asparagus take longer to cook and flavors don't infuse as well. Storage tip: Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
