Roasted Asparagus

February 3, 2009

As I have said before, asparagus is one of our favorite veggies.  I am always looking for new ways to prepare it, just so we’re not stuck having the same recipe all the time.  The flavor of asparagus itself is very good, just add a little salt and pepper it’s good to go but it’s always nice to have a little variation.  I know there are only so many ways to cook things but there are endless possibilities as far as flavor and seasonings. 

Since I was trying to do something a different with the asparagus I decided to roast it and add some flavors that I haven’t used before.  This was so easy to throw together and it didn’t take long to cook at all.  That’s another good thing about asparagus, it doesn’t take long to cook no matter how it’s prepared.  The end result was awesome, it was a little sweet and had some tartness from the lemon juice.  The combination of flavors were incredible.
