Here is another beloved dish that Jesse and I often make from AllRecipes.com: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/oven-roasted-asparagus/detail.aspx
Not only is it easy and quick, but you have to be quick to take some for yourself – this dish tends to go almost as soon as it’s brought out to the table. To think of all the time I wasted growing up thinking I didn’t like asparagus! I’ve become a huge asparagus fan over this recipe!
There are a few optional ingredients for this recipe. I use all but the Parmesan cheese. But don’t just trust me, try it out for yourself!
But first, today’s Cooked Comic:
And here’s the recipe:
