In my opinion, steaming the asparagus before roasting it is not only an inconvenient, unnecessary step that uses more pans, but it may even result in overcooking the asparagus once it finally makes it to the 475 degreee oven. I roasted mine in a 400 degree oven alongside the fish I prepared for dinner. Both were done in 15 minutes (as a point of reference my asparagus were on the thicker side) For a seasoning twist I used Penzey's Chicago Steak Seasoning instead of just ground pepper. Easier and five-star excellent if simply roasted in the oven, period.
