Roasted Asparagus

Fresh roasted asparagus is not only great for you (Vitamin K and a good bit of Vitamin A), but when cooked well, tastes great too. Forget that salty, squishy, canned asparagus. Give yourself an opportunity to eat well with this roasted savory version.

To prevent fratricide, I typically have to grab several (at least three) “bundles” of asparagus when I’m in the produce section and double or triple the recipe because my children turn into my minions and dance around with forks trying to get the last piece.

It’s easier to buy more asparagus than it is to vanquish a demon.
