1. Cut four sheets of aluminum foil about 14-inch long.

2. Divide asparagus into 4 equal portions (about 8 spears per foil packet) and layer in center of each length of foil.

3. In a small bowl stir together oil with garlic. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of the oil over portion of asparagus then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
