Roasted Asparagus – Part Two

Early on with this blog, I spent a weekend at my mom’s and I made most of the meals. Hungry for posts, I wrote them up and added this great vegetable side as a mention on one of the posts.

Here it is in all its glory.

I added a little prosciutto to what the recipe had. Leave it out for Kosher and vegetarian options.

I used dried parsley.

Ready to be roasted.

When there was five minutes left, I sprinkled on some chopped prosciutto. With three minutes left, I added the pine nuts and parsley.

    I use a similar recipe with my seared venison tenderloin w/ balsamic glaze. Your addition of pine nuts and prosciutto sounds fabulous! I can’t wait to try it! Yum!

    Never tried asparagus. It’s not so common in the region where I live, but it looks great.
