Crunchy Garlic & Parmesan Asparagus

Crunchy Garlic & Parmesan Asparagus

Roasting is a simple way to cook extremely flavourful veggies! In my last blog, I explored the numerous nutrition benefits to having your veggies roasted opposed to raw or boiled. This recipe was put together in a matter of minutes when a friend was visiting for dinner.  We wanted to roast asparagus, instead of steaming them, to enjoy extra flavour along with an exceptional crunch. They turned out so well!  Hope you enjoy the recipe.
