Friday Recipe: Roasted Asparagus

>> Friday, December 5, 2008

Continuing the vegetable theme from last week and offering a simple (to type and to make) recipe, I offer roasted asparagus. Claire introduced me to this asparagus, and it remains one of the few ways I actually like eating asparagus.

Roasted Asparagus
~as much or as little as you want

Olive Oil
Garlic, crushed

1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
2. Trim asparagus.
3. Lay asparagus in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.

4. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with crushed garlic, salt, and pepper to taste.
5. Roast at 500 degrees for ~ 12 minutes. (Thicker asparagus may need more time.)

*I prefer thin asparagus, but do as you wish.

*Like with any cooking, the better olive oil you use, the better the dish will be.

I'm a little late here, but did you ever make it to Lombardino's here in Madison and have their asparagus alla Milanese appetizer? Roasted, lightly salted asparagus, over-easy egg and really, really good asiago cheese on top and frisee underneath. One of my most favorite dishes ever!

Say hi to VA for me.

Thanks for stopping by! I did make it to Lombardino's but I didn't have their asparagus....I guess I'll have to come back to try it! I hope all is well in Madison. I'll say hi to everyone in VA for you as I believe I'll be seeing a good chunk o' people tomorrow.
