Roasted Asparagus

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by Glenda4

This gets the highest ratings for "Bread and Circuses." It is colorful, tasty and easy --- a great "fresh vegetable" addition to your table. I served it to my Book Club along with Grilled Bourbon Salmon and they all loved it. I added salad and rolls --- and I was "set."
