You’ll love these quick and easy Oven Roasted Parmesan Asparagus – they’re a beautiful side dish to any main course!
My love of asparagus began at a pretty young age… I was about 5 years old when my mom and sister and I would go to pick asparagus off the ditch banks in the town where we lived. I thought they were the silliest looking little things and so intrigued that we could just pick them right off those dirty banks and take them home to cook and eat!
When we moved, I remember being bummed that not every ditch bank everywhere produced the magical spring time delights! As an adult- I’ve resorted to buying them in stores. I’ve tried to grow them in my garden a few times but without much luck at all. I really look forward to the time of year when they’re fresh pickins’ at the produce department… which is just beginning right now! YAY.
