Oven Roasted Asparagus

Oven Roasted Asparagus; msalishacarlson.com/We are veggie lovers here, but I have to admit that asparagus is one veggie thatrarely gets a spot at the table.

When our oldest was about 18-months old, he would happily eat asparagus and without question. But for some reason we moved away from it. I know, I must be crazy… if the kid eats it, we should’ve been eating it all the time!

It’s been about 3 years since I made asparagus. But needing some different healthy side dish options, these fun little green spears stood up and got my attention at the grocer. I prepared it the same way I used to and it was once again happily welcomed at our table with a pleading to have it again.

Not only do I love that it’s healthy (low cal and low carb), but super easy! Lots of flavor for very little prep! That’ my kind of cookin’!
