  1. This recipe is a great, simple way to enjoy asparagus. To kick it up a little, I added fresh minced garlic to the asparagus before roasting.

  8. I was inspired and added my own twist to this recipe! Dipped asparagus is egg and then rolled in breadcrumbs, sprinkled some grated parmasean cheese and sprayed with butter. Put in the oven on 375 for about 13 minutes. DELICIOUS!!
