Garlicky Roasted Asparagus


This is by far one of my favorite recipes, especially this time of year.  I was so excited a couple of years to put my asparagus bed in and finally this year we had a great harvest of asparagus.  It takes 3 years for asparagus to get established and this year was year 3!  If only they could grow all summer.  Not only is this recipe a fam favorite it is quick and SIMPLE.
