Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables and although I love whipping up fancy recipes with my beloved asparagus, most of the time I am simply tossing it with olive, salt, and pepper and roasting it for a delicious side dish in 10 minutes. I usually double the recipe so I have leftovers for quick scrambles, a delicious salad addition, or to add to wraps and sandwiches.
