On the side

People are always asking for easy ideas for side dishes.  I have a lot of them in my arsenal, since I usually put most of my effort into the main dish (at least on a daily basis).  Simplicity is best with certain vegetables.  Asparagus is one of them - it doesn't need to be "dressed up" in order to be delicious and ready to serve.

Roast some asparagus today - you'll be glad you did :)

What's your favorite side dish?

Roasted Asparagus with Garlic
1 pound asparagus, ends snapped off, cut into thirds
10 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a ziploc bag, combine asparagus, garlic and oil and let sit for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 450.  Place asparagus on baking pan and add salt and pepper.  Roast for about 15 minutes, or until asparagus is slightly brown.  Cooking time may vary depending on how large your asparagus is.
