Lemon Garlic Roasted Beets

I have really not liked beets, but these were really good.

Lemon Garlic Roasted Beets
1 lb. beets, peeled and sliced 1/4" thick
4 cloves garlic, sliced thin or minced
2 T. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. lemon zest
1/2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. sugar
1 pinch each, salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375*. In an 8" square glass baking dish, toss all ingredients together. Rub a piece of parchment paper with olive oil and set oiled side down on the beets. Cover tightly with tin foil and roast for 40 minutes, shaking pan occasionally.

To be honest I forgot to do the parchment paper and the tin foil, but these were still really good.
