Roasted Asparagus with Garlic and Shallots
I think asparagus is just naturally pretty. Something about it entices me, so it is usually my veggie of choice. I usually roast it just like this, just because it's so easy to do and always comes out great. It always dresses up the plate. So enjoy this pretty veggie - in sight and taste!
Asparagus (as much as you want!) rinsed and dried
1/2 shallot, finely chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
Extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil, and spray it with non-stick spray. Lay your asparagus on the baking sheet in a single layer, and sprinkle it with your garlic, shallot, and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over all of the asparagus. Roast in oven for about 10-12 minutes or until asparagus is bright green and shallots look semi-translucent to translucent.
