Beautiful, skinny, tender asparagus is just begging to be roasted. And the fact is, you can never go wrong with roasted asparagus. Never. It is quick and simple and pairs perfectly with almost any dish.
This particular batch was roasted with a little lime juice + smoked paprika, but often times we just roast it with a little garlic, salt and pepper. The recipe is pretty adaptable so put on your creative caps and go get to roasting.
Hope you Enjoy! =)Print
